Enabling changemakers in some of the poorest places on the planet.
SPARK* PAPUA NEW GUINEA – ACTIVE CHANGEMAKERS: We are supporting 15 new Papua New Guinean Changemakers in April 2013.

Spark* provided $1000 to the project for the first harvest, $4000 of support to scale this objective and is preparing to raise $2000 of further support to improve links with better markets. Spark* has also helped John create a brand and marketing collateral for his organisation, as well as support to help them register with the government.
