Aside from contributing to the overall safety of the community, ICTSI also distributed school bags and learning materials to school children with the ports impacted communities. In Lae, ICTSI South Pacific travelled to the island communities of Labu and Ahi Village to donate more than 5,000 school bags. Together with the leadership of AHI Investments and Labu Holdings, SPICT visited the villages of Labu Tale, Labu Butu, Labu Miti, Labu Markham, Wagang, Yanga, Butibam, Hengali, Kamkumung, and Yalu/Muya. The activities were made possible through the support of the Lae Open Representatives. In Port Moresby, PNG’s national women’s rugby team joined Motukea International Terminal in distributing 700 school bags for each community in the Baruni and Tatana villages.
“Education is the great equalizer. Soon the young will inherit whatever legacy we will leave behind and build on them. By helping them achieve proper education, we are enabling them to become progressive members of society. We will be here to support the youth with projects that would help make learning easier and accessible to them,” said George Gware, SPICT General Manager.

OMILI POLICE STATION GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY

Lae, Papua New Guinea The ICTSI South Pacific Limited (ISPL), through its Lae operator, South Pacific International Container Terminal (SPICT) has kept its commitment to build the Omili Police Station with a groundbreaking ceremony today, Friday, 14 June 2019. Papua New Guinea’s law and order issues continue to plague it; but government, citizens and corporations alike are combining their efforts to keep the peace, grow communities and instill investor confidence. It is in that vein that the Global Corporate Head of the ICTSI Group, Christian Gonzalez, made a commitment to build the Omili Police Station, following the Malahang Police Station Launch in February this year. “We take our corporate citizenship seriously. The Malahang Police Station in Lae is a testament to our community investment and our willingness to collaborate and partner with the Government and the Community. Our new undertaking for the construction of the Omili Police Station is largely underpinned by our commitment to our staff, and the safety and security of the communities where they reside, and the safety and security of the community where we operate,” said Mr Gonzalez. Similar to the Malahang Police Station, the Omili Police Station will be a public-private partnership between the ICTSI Foundation in Manila, Ahi Hope Foundation in Lae, the Member for Lae and Minister for Lands, Hon. John Rosso, as well as the Lae City Authority. By the time the Omili Police Station is complete, it will have separate cell blocks for men, women and juveniles, an ablution block, offices fully furnished with desks, chairs, computers, ceiling fans and a wall mounted TV; and will house a Women’s Desk to encourage female survivors of domestic violence to seek assistance and file complaints. The construction of the police station will involve local contractors engaging community members, so the money goes back into the community; and skills continue to be transferred in all ICTSI engagements. “We are in the business of bringing world class services to our port operation here in Papua New Guinea. But, we know that law and order problems continue to rip the fabric of society at its seams, and as a new corporate citizen, we have an obligation to ensuring that we are able to positively influence the narrative over the course of our 25 year concession,” said ISPL CEO, Anil Singh. Mr Singh said much more is achieved with the limited resources if everyone works as a team. ENDS… Lae Poster
