Pride of PNG Awards for women launched

The CPL group of Companies has the 2016 Pride of PNG Awards for Women today, with the aim of recognising women throughout the country in (6) six different categories.
Chairman for CPL Mr Mahesh Patel urged the general public to nominate females in their respective communities that have done extraordinary things to make the community they live in a better place.
“For 10 years now, CPL has been there to be the mirror reflecting the light of unsung heroic women of PNG who have spread their light throughout their communities and the beacons of hope to all those around them “ said Mr Mahesh.
Meanwhile former recipient and winner of the PNG Young Award in 2014, Bronwyn Kili commended CPL for its initiative in recognising women of all ages who are striving for a better community.
She said the award does not only recognise them for their work but it creates a platform for the award winners to continue to strive for a better PNG.
“It’s not about the medal but it has added value to the kind of work that we do, which has been the case for me ever since I received the award and I’m grateful that with this award I was selected to attend the International Youth Forum and my work as a peer educator has gained more recognition than before” Said Bronwyn.
Nomination forms can be collected from all CPL stores throughout the country and nomination closes on the 15th of July 2016.
The six Award categories include;
• Bravery and Courage
• Care and Compassion
• Community Spirit
• Education/Role Model
