Message from the Director of NYDA.

Young people in our country make-up one third of PNG's total population, most of it is disjointed with Governments development plans that need to be mobilised, linked-up and actively involved at the National, Provincial and Local Level Government development processes. As a nation, youths need to be empowered properly so that they can work on their own we aim to harness through our partners. We thank you and welcome you on board this new era in helping to build a sustainable future for our young people.
