Melanesia Education Development Foundation Inc

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

The Melanesia Education Development Foundation Inc promotes educational development opportunities for less fortunate children, students and the people of Papua New Guinea and Greater Melanesia. The Foundation runs three programmes for which they need additional resources: a sponsorship programme for needy children and students; an educational materials and infrastructure development programme to provide resources and classrooms; and a peacebuilding programme that provides training for individuals to work as peace mediators. More than 1000 of these mediators have already been trained, helping to combat social evils including domestic violence, drug abuse and tribal conflicts. The organisation has also started a micro-credit programme for parents of school children, helping them to earn enough money to cater for school fees for their children.

In addition, the Foundation has started work on the building of a new primary school, and has developed projects for school libraries and computers.
