The project will start in Hoskins, West New Britain Province where we will work on a small building project for a week. We will then fly on to Kavieng, New Ireland province Papua New Guinea. Our project there will be to build a citizen guest house at our NTM centre. There will be skilled and unskilled work. A willingness to work is all that is required.
Flight arrangements still have to be finalised. We will take an international flight to Port Moresby PNG. From there we will take a domestic flight to New Britain and then a week later take a flight to Kavieng New Ireland. We will fly direct then from Kavieng to Port Moresby to catch our international flight at the end of the trip.
New Tribes Mission guest house in Hoskins and Kavieng. Basic but clean.
