    "Hi Steffen & Dagmar

    Congratulations on your excellent work during your assignment in Malampa Province.

    I especially enjoyed reading about your work in creating the dam for MAPBEST & Sarmette Village

    You can feel blessed that the benefits you brought to the area will live on long after you left

    Well done & I hope you are settling well back into NZ life

    "Hi Tyler,
    Great to read this post! This is a common issue we have with Government entities throughout PNG. If this same 'assignment' could be done for every province - it'd be fantastic! I think it depends on getting the different leaders to see the importance of technology to become a priority development tool.
    Thank you for your contributions to the people of Bouganville and PNG.
    I'd like to share this post on my blog and pages also. Kind Regards, Carole." - Carole
