Men of Honour |Addresssing Violence| Digicel PNG

Men of Honour Campaign

The Men of Honour is a Campaign run by the Digicel Foundation aimed at breaking the cycle of violence through focusing on positive behaviour for affirmative action The Annual Men of Honour Awards is the flagship event on the Men of Honour Calendar.  Through the Digicel Foundation Men of Honour Awards, communities are encouraged to look within their communities to nominate ordinary men who are doing extraordinary things. In honouring the good men of Papua New Guinea, Digicel PNG Foundation is using positive behaviour to promote positive role models for the next generation to follow. To date we have awarded 83 Men from across the country with awards in the categories of education, community leadership, entrepreneurship, sports, ingenuity and youth leadership.  These men have formed a solid network and collectively advocate against violence.
