Mission Statement

Beautifully situated over 462,840 sq. km with 6.5 million people, Papua New Guinea boasts being a unique and diverse nation. With tropical jungles pristine and untouched, the country is immersed with diverse cultures and languages, making the country truly the last frontier. Customs such as traditional dancing, art,and festivals offer visitors an unforgettable glimpse into Papua New Guinea’s past and potential for the future. As a developing country, Papua New Guinea possesses vast natural resources. However well endowed Papua New Guinea may be, the country still struggles with socio-economic problems around health care, education, law and order and infrastructure. Our organization aims to address on a micro level, some of these issues, such as health care to provide an opportunity for Papua New Guineans build a better life for themselves. However, we need your help. We believe that no one person can go it alone. Together, with your help, we can make a difference in the life of a child, or in the life of a villager that can truly change Papua New Guinea. We invite you to take a closer look at our projects.

PNGINUSA serves as a medium to connect our interests in the United States and abroad where Papua New Guineans strive to make a difference in our communities and country politically, socially and economically. PNGINUSA strives to meet this goal with a heightened emphasis on rural and disadvantaged sectors of Papua New Guinea with the help of mutual friendships and relationships fostered in the United States and globally.
