In a transformative move towards enhancing the future prospects of Papua New Guineans, the Wan PNG platform is all set for its grand debut after several months of meticulous groundwork. With an unwavering commitment to address the challenges posed by skill gaps in the nation's workforce, the Wan PNG team has undertaken a dynamic journey, connecting with educational institutions and aspiring graduates to pave the way for a brighter and more empowered Papua New Guinea.

The journey towards Wan PNG's launch has been marked by extensive travels and engagements, as the team traversed the length and breadth of the nation, forging connections and spreading the message of empowerment. The heartening initiative has been all across the country from places like the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) Expo held on the 9th and 10th of August, a vibrant event that showcased the talents and aspirations of Papua New Guinean youth. At this event, the Wan PNG team interacted with graduates and learners, discussing the exciting opportunities that the platform holds for them. Before this the team was up in Lae at the Unitech and Lae Polytech exploring how the platform can help its graduates find work and transition from education to a good career.

A highlight in this journey was the collaboration with the Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited (KPHL) Graduate Development Program. This strategic partnership showcased the platform's commitment to working hand in hand with institutions to bridge skill gaps and create avenues for employment. The KPHL Graduate Development Program resonates deeply with the ethos of Wan PNG, aligning visions to uplift local talents and channeling them towards a prosperous future.

Furthering their commitment to empowerment, the Wan PNG team engaged with the Institute of Business Studies University (IBSU). This engagement was a testament to the platform's focus on reaching diverse sectors of the economy. By collaborating with academic institutions like IBSU, Wan PNG demonstrates its capacity to encompass a wide spectrum of industries, nurturing skills and talents that span various fields.

The team's journey of empowerment also led them to the National Health Fair, an event that highlighted the significance of a skilled healthcare workforce. Engaging with healthcare professionals and aspiring students, Wan PNG emphasized the platform's potential in facilitating the development of the healthcare sector, ensuring a competent workforce to cater to the nation's needs.

Wan PNG's efforts have been truly commendable, extending to encompass educational institutions like the MAPEX Training Institute and the International Training Institute. These engagements reaffirm the platform's inclusive approach, as it collaborates with institutions from various sectors to ensure that no opportunity for growth is left untapped.

As the launch of Wan PNG approaches, Papua New Guinea stands on the cusp of a transformative era. The platform's tireless journey across the nation, connecting with graduates and institutions alike, showcases its dedication to creating a dynamic ecosystem where skills, talent, and opportunities converge. Wan PNG is primed to usher in a new era of empowerment and growth for all Papua New Guineans.
