Jennifer Ponahai – Empowering Communities through Commitment and Passion

It only takes commitment, hard work, and passion. Jennifer Ponahai, a 38-year-old Airport Officer with OTML and a Central woman, exemplifies this truth.

Recognizing her privilege, Jennifer felt compelled to help her community, especially youths, through sports and small business projects.

She is the President of the Soheneliu Village Youth Group in the inlands of Manus Province. Together with her husband, Herman Ponahai, they initiated a solar lighting project, funded entirely by the couple, to ensure the safety of their village's inhabitants.
