WHP’s mission to be self-reliant

The Western Highlands Provincial Administration Team with the support of Western Highlands Governor is on a mission to change the mindset of Western Highlanders to be self-reliant and not to depend too much on the Government.

Acting Provincial Administration Stanley Maip said this is the new approach the Provincial Government Team is taking now that the country is going through cash flow issues.

“Complaining and waiting is a waste of time”.

At least that’s what the Western Highlands Provincial Administration believes when it comes to delivering services.

The National Government hasn’t come good with the promised Services Improvement Program Funds and Provincial Support Grants, but this province is not complaining.

Western Highlands Governor, Pius Wingti even joked during the presentation of the Provinces 2017 Acquittals that complaining and stressing over money will produce too many wrinkles.

Acting Provincial Administrator, Stanley Maip said the little Government funds received is used to empower the people to take ownership.

He said, Western Highlanders are hardworking people and will not sit down and wait for the Government to deliver development.

Maip said a classic example is the building of schools throughout the province. 

In 2012, there were about 9 High Schools, today there are 32.
