The funds will help students organise the WNB Day tomorrow in Port Moresby.
Maneke said culture and tradition is the backbone of every society and supporting the students is a good gesture.
He encouraged the students to not forget their origins and make it their priority to pass it on to the next generation.
"Strengthening our culture and traditional rituals are very important in our lives.
"Without our culture, we wouldn't know our existence,” Maneke stated.
