Hi all, and welcome to this site promoting the work of Peoples of Australasia for Innovation and Growth Abroad (PAIGA) Inc.

PAIGA is an Australian not-for-profit which for 15 years has been supporting health initiatives in the communities of Paigatasa and Gimi in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea.

On this site you can read about our work establishing and supporting the Paiga Health Clinic, and you can also read about our new project for a Maternity Waiting Home, which we are planning to establish near Goroka .

We’ll keep you posted here on our on-going work with the communities on both these projects, and if you wish to support the projects you can do so donate directly using our donate facility.

Our logo features one of the many stunning designs on the bilums we sell to raise funds for our projects. Every bilum sold helps the women makers send their children to school. The profits from bilum sales also adds to our funds to continue our health projects and other work.
