Ponowi Orchid Farm Project
Ponowi Orchid Farm Project
The project is located in Ialibu District, Southern Highlands Province. It basically involves the establishment of an orchid farm. This innovation was initiated by the local youths who were unsuccessful in securing positions into the secondary and tertiary institutions. The orchid farm would be a facility to preserve and conserve as well as promote eco-tourism activities that can encourage local people as well as the youths to earn some form of income as the project developed. An initial award of US$1518.99 planning grant was given Niugini Wildlife Society to assist Ponowi to fully develop their project proposal. Niugini Wildlife Society was approved by the NSC to assist in providing the technical and management support. The full grant was awarded after the proponent submitted a completed proposal.
