National Volunteer Services to recruit PNG Students

 THE National Volunteer Service (NVS) will recruit graduates from the Papua New Guinea University of Technology (Unitech) as volunteers.

This was made possible after a memorandum of understanding was signed between Unitech and NVS at the school’s main campus last week in Lae.

The five-year partnership was made possible by NVS after recognising the need for skilled volunteers with a fresh approach to spearhead various projects in the country.

NVS chairman Bernard Maladina said: “One way the Government seeks to address the needs of the rural populace is through the engagement of volunteers and volunteer intervention programmes.”

Maladina said NVS was established 33 years ago and until recently was given prominence for the work it has been doing in terms of engaging skilled volunteers in education, health and the agriculture sectors in light of the economic empowerment impact had on the people in rural communities.

“The MoU signing will now allow direct volunteer recruitment of graduates from the university as there have been instances where NVS partner organisations on the ground required technical expertise, hence, the relevance of the partnership,” he said.

Unitech vice-chancellor Professor Ora Renagi said he was excited about the partnership to engage students straight out of university as it will greatly benefit all parties involved.
