VSO is in the process of scaling back its operations in Papua New Guinea. Unfortunately, we have been unable to attract the funding needed to maintain a large office in a country with such high operating costs.
We are maintaining our registration in PNG and intend to re-start programming activity when suitable opportunities emerge. We are developing partnerships with several international organisations with a view to supporting a consortia approach to our future work in PNG.
