Her company operates as a social enterprise, with a focus on a "profit for a purpose" ethos.

Collaborating with over 900 farmers from 11 villages in Jiwaka and the Western Highlands, Emma's approach is holistic, seeking to improve the livelihoods of her people.

Renovation Underway For NAQIA Labs

NAQIA’s National Animal Health & Food Testing Laboratory Facility in Kilakila will be renovated through the PHAMA Plus program funded by the Australian Government.

The improvements will help to increase the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) capability. This is a method widely used to rapidly make millions to billions of copies of a specific DNA sample, allowing scientists to take a very small sample of DNA and amplify it to a large enough amount to study in detail.

The improvements include infrastructure support services in electrical, mechanical and hydraulic.
