NCDC carries out awareness at Nine-Mile

The NCDC Gender Desk officer Kay Kaugla conducted an awareness program organised by the Morobe Community Development Association of Nine-Mile.

The program was to create dialogue about social issues faced by people in the area.

This follows an invitation to  officers from the Gender Desk to carry out awareness in the area.

The invitation was further extended to other divisions and sections of NCDC to form a group and do community education awareness to the people of Nine-Mile.

NCDC Gender Officer Kay Kaugla says  more  than 5,000 people live in this area they were in need of  more information and awareness  according to the leaders of the Morobe Community.

Kaugla says that because invitation was extended to other divisions, she wanted the community to know what different services NCDC  provides for the public and how and when to reach out for help  to those divisions when the need arose.

“The purpose of this awareness is to tell the community what kind of services all the divisions and sections of NCDC, Department of Community and Social Services is providing to the people of the city,” Kaugla says.

 She says people in the city pay tax and they have the right to know the kind of services the city authority is providing to them and that is why the NCDC team is here to tell them of the roles and functions that they do and to tell them that this services are available should they need them.

The awareness was a one day program and other communities who would want awareness to be conducted in their area can contact the NCDC help desk to get more information.
