PNGean, Karma and Kandepen;
it is pleasing that educated engan elites such as you are determined to discussing essential issues of major concern to enga, which is supported. if this spirit is still alive, may the discussion be rekindled.
the Kumul Scholars International Convention discussed such issues under the emblem: 'PNG Women in Development: 21st Century and Beyond' in Canberra, Australia last week. many scholars(academics in australia) and practitioners (attached international organizations) who were involved, commended initial progresses of some projects in the country and thus, supported these projects be expended to other parts of the country.

(http://clubs.anu.edu.au/clubs/PNG_Canberra_Students_Association/ksi.php)
Dr. Charla Yala (kompiam-ANU/png national research institute) expressed that notable gap between female and male students’ enrolment (male student enrolment higher by more than 1/3 percentage) be thoroughly examined and expressed formally. i supported Dr. Yala’s view in a presentation by a pngean PhD woman candidate (Velepat Tuaru).

(i)a submission containing the recommendations of the convention will be presented to the png regional development forum and other government forums. These recommendations would be adopted as new development policy or re-enforce existing development policy of the country (and eventually be funded).
(ii)Engan women can engage in some of these projects. if appropriate level of enthusiasm and determination is expressed, these projects can be extended to enga. Need a congregation for engan women in enga and demonstrated support from people and the provincial government.
Is/are any one of you eager to work on some initial tasks? Or any other engan woman/women living in enga interested to participate. Essentially, above all, it is to help engan women to seek an expanded role in the public space and commercial sector to help develop enga.

Fellows,
Regardless of gender you'll achieve if you have a goal and purpose in life. There is not much excuse now if you are determined just like female Kandepen is saying.
I see Engan women are more agressive and charismatic who can lead over others. Take a look at Scholar Warai, Janet Sape and Anda Cathy Kakaraiya in the political arena in PNG among others. What is stoping the rest?
I believe women are equal to men and can be better achievers in many ways. Come on ladies! break the barrier and live up to the promise and expectations.

this issue is a problem that exists hence corrective practical measures need to be undertaken to solve it to improve livelihood of those affected, as all are not equally capable.
