Project Wok Lite

In response to a request from community leaders like Roy Lasa from 14 Mile Limo Urban Ward 4, Koiari, Project Yumi Inc in conjunction with its sponsors are expanding the Project Wok program to support past Grade 12 students by offer a short community-led classroom-based program. This short program will provide participants with an overview of hints and tips on resume writing, job search strategies, preparation for interview and important social skills for making a good impression.

On Saturday the 4th of February, at Kouba Primary School, 35 past Grade 12 students from 14 Mile had the opportunity to attend the first Project Wok community-based program.

Participants from the community were very grateful to Project Yumi and Credit Corporation for running the program within their community and assisting them with improving their employability skills.

Project Yumi hope to run more Project Wok Lite programs with other small communities around Port Moresby in the future.
