Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea (PNG) is a beautiful country rich in culture and natural resources, but with many challenges. Rapid urbanisation has lead to overcrowding, high unemployment and high crime rates. People in rural areas have severely limited access to health and education resources.

Domestic violence and sexual abuse, especially against women and children is all too common but prosecutions are rare.
