2009 Update from Pat Jessen

Dear Friends Lots of activity in 2009 culminated in great new partnerships with InfoXchange Australia Technology for Social Justice who is delivering a Green PC Enterprise in Suai in partnership with the Suai Community Centre & FoS.  International Womens’ Development Agency (IWDA) is funding a Women’s program at the Suai Community Centre with a focus on rural livelihoods. Two library technicians are being trained for the new library at the Suai Secondary School & funded by FoS donors and Rotary Club of Balwyn. There is still no day power in Suai town ship and little elsewhere in the district apart where there is solar power. It’s hard to live and do business without electricity. The roads are still bad and even worse in the two wet seasons with communications still patchy, but there is hope for new infrastructure in the coming year. The dawn of oil and gas development in Suai holds a promise of work for local people and many are up-skilling to be in line for expected new jobs in the future. Pat Jessen
