Mission and objectives

Morobe Development Foundation Inc. is a leading Internationally recognised NGO based in Lae Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea who has the vision to help young people reach their full potential by utilizing their hidden talents in community development initiatives so they can realize their potential and become a role model in the community. MDF was established to address a broader and more diverse range of objectives and work through the use of dance, music and drama, MDF’s primary aim is to ensure that women participate equally in decision making in any project undertaken, including projects related to Ending Violence against Women, and promoting Human Rights with a aim to support the Government and UN their Development Goals. MDF, in collaboration with Online Volunteers engaged through the UNV's Unified Volunteer Platform (UVP), has also undertaken various scientific research studies related to the environment - forest cover loss, land use land cover change, the influence of various parameters on surface waters, and coastal shoreline turtle habitat loss. These projects included the participation of various experts and researchers from diverse fields across various countries across the globe - ranging from marine biology, biodiversity conservation, PNG community management, remote sensing, and land use policy among various others. MDF is managed by a management committee, which is made up of the Chairman, the Deputy Chairman, Secretary, the Treasurer, the Project Coordinator, Community Development Officer, and a male and female member of the foundation, and ensures that women participate equally in decision making. We at MDF assert that we have the required skill sets, knowledge, established international network, and the necessary foundational work to undertake projects successfully.


The assignment is in line with MDF's goal which is to create various policies or guiding materials that will be used by the members of the Foundation to carry out its respective activities, specifically related to delivering capacity building/training/workshops for community development projects. The teaching, learning, and awareness policy/guidelines, like other policies developed by MDF, will guide members of MDF when teaching members of the community during capacity building training like women empowerment, climate change, and other environmental issues projects, etc. To that end, we are seeking the support of Online Volunteers with experience in higher learning teaching to support us in developing the guiding materials. The assignment is relevant to the UN SDG as it fits well with MDF's objective which is to continue supporting rural community development to address various SDG challenges including women empowerment, climate change, and other environmental issues in PNG.
