As we wind down for the year we would like to thank all our friends who have provided financial, in-kind, and pro-bono support over 2015.

We would like to thank global management consulting firm Bain & Company for running a day-long strategy session with ABV’s CEO and Communications Manager and four of their consultants.

We greatly appreciate the pro-bono assistance provided by Sparke Helmore Lawyers, in particular in relation to changes to our Constitution and Trust Deed.

We would also like to thank again those businesses and individuals who helped make ABV’s inaugural YES for PNG women happen, including Paddy’s Hotel, Digicel, Pacific Islands Trade and Invest, Asia-Pacific Professionals Association, Virgin Australia, and various ABV members.

Finally we would like to thank ABV volunteers for all their great work. With the implementation of our new Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting and Improvement plan we are getting a clearer view of the real impact our highly skilled volunteers are having.

Thanks again and have a safe and happy Christmas.
