Digicel Supports Men of Honour Awards

Digicel PNG Foundation was presented with K20,000 from Digicel PNG for the support of this year’s Men of Honour Award Gala Night to be held on April 15 at the Sir John Guise Indoor Complex.

Digicel PNG is the category sponsor of the Men of Honour Community Leadership Award.

The category award celebrates community fathers who lead by example to show and accept pardon in the face of adversity. The award recognises men who are protectors and inspire a safer future, especially for children.

Digicel PNG CEO Maurice McCarthy said Digicel was proud to support the category, which recognises men who demonstrate integrity and ethics, and foster and develop talent within their families and their community.

“We hope that this campaign will encourage a culture of mutual respect and create positive opportunities for people.” 

Last year’s winner of the category Jimmy Drekore went on to win the overall Man of Honour award. Drekore continues his work with the Simbu Children’s Foundation to provide solutions for children  in Chimbu in need of medical assistance and continues his work with the Simbu Writers Association to address education and literacy issues.

Sarah Haoda Todd is the judge for the Community Leadership category and is now in the final stages of her selection.

The Foundation has established The Men of Honour campaign to identify ordinary men who are doing extraordinary activities that contribute to the suppression of violence in homes and communities within the country.
