why is this project important?

The sharing of professional skills and subject matter expertise to enable significant social/health impact to the communities where Australian business operate, seems like a good opportunity to develop good relationships to further assist nation building an diplomacy.

In February 2018, three volunteers from WorleyParsons and Advisian, travelled to Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea (PNG) to visit the coastal community of Hanuabada. Three others from WorleyParsons supported the technical inputs of the study with remote skilled volunteering (WASH experts).

Under a Pro Bono Services Agreement arrangement with World Vision, the volunteers led a feasibility study for the investigation and design of options for toilet systems to improve local sanitation conditions for the 12,000 people of Hanuabada. The WorleyParsons Foundation supported the non-labour travel costs and provided a donation to the NGO partner to support the project execution.

Over two days, the team worked with World Vision and Asia P3 Hub to speak with various stakeholders in the community. “The visit was an intense but exhilarating experience for everyone,” says Rajiv Venkatraman, an Advisian consultant from the Melbourne office. “We were able to interview residents and meet and consult government representatives to gather insights while visiting existing toilet facilities.”
