Digicel presented a cheque of K50, 000 cash well as 50, 000 in kind and support to Founder of Women in Business Janet Sape at the new Women in Business warehouse located at the Steamships compound, Waigani.
Digicel Retail Director Lorna McPherson who presented the cheque says Digicel is excited to be part of this years expo and part of the reason why they wanted to be part of the expo is because of the difference made from last years expo for women in PNG.
“What Janet and her team does to establish women is a really great effort and to get women to come out and show off to the rest of the PNG what they can do to contribute to the investment of their family and children,” she says.
McPherson adds that once we know that we are empowering women, they invest in education and health and this will really improve PNG and this K100, 000 in cash and kind support will make a big difference.
