National Volunteer Service of Papua New Guinea

From security guard to programs director

When Christopher was not selected for the high school of his choice, he came to Port Moresby to look for a paid job. He took up a short computer accounting course while working his first job as a security guard, but his passion for the creative arts eventually led him to apply for Theatre Arts courses at the University of Papua New Guinea.

“Studying Theatre Arts opened up a whole new world for me,” says Christopher.

“It helped me discover my passion for social work and community development, which is what I have been doing ever since.”

The design of the app as described by the app developer representative, Albert Arija as “user-friendly” hosts two different online recruitment and registrations forms, the Partner Organization Application and Volunteer Expression of Interest Application.

Arija said it took eight months to develop the app.
