The funds will help students organise the WNB Day tomorrow in Port Moresby.
Maneke said culture and tradition is the backbone of every society and supporting the students is a good gesture.
He encouraged the students to not forget their origins and make it their priority to pass it on to the next generation.
"Strengthening our culture and traditional rituals are very important in our lives.
"Without our culture, we wouldn't know our existence,” Maneke stated.
"Therefore we must make it our utmost priority to preserve our culture and pass it down to our next generation."
Minister Maneke will be a guest of honour along with WNB Governor Sasindran Muthuvel, Police Commissioner Gari Baki and other WNB elites at the WNB day tomorrow.
The event will be held at the Constitutional Park.
