Gateway Children’s Fund
Gateway Children’s Fund (PNG) Inc has been operating since 1990, providing child development and community projects in the settlements of Port Moresby, creating a safer, healthier environment for children & families.
Their specific goal is to improve the lives of PNG’s most impoverished children. Through their work over 250 children, each week receive basic healthcare, literacy, education, and daily meals, to improve their personal wellbeing, and that of the communities. Additionally, 50 mothers directly benefit from the program each week, while other mothers and children are helped indirectly. They work in 5 specialised areas including Infant & Maternal Care (mothers and children from birth to age 3), Preschool Wellbeing (children aged 4-6), Elementary School Prep to Grade 2 (children aged 7 – 9), Leadership Development (basic leadership and skills training), Community Projects (eg. clean water, sanitation, electricity, community gatherings, adult literacy etc.).
The Sir Brian Bell Foundation is proud to assist Gateway children’s Fund for 2 years running as major sponsor of their corporate fundraising initiative. In 2018, additional funding was also provided to build their classroom to help expand classes and grade levels offered. In 2018, Gateway Children’s Fund additionally received Official Government Registration to become an Early Childhood Centre which is the first centre to be registered in PNG under this new legislation.
In partnership with the Brian Bell Group, the Sir Brian Bell Foundation provided additional funding through the Christmas Wish Tree program which was selected out of numerous charities by Brian Bell Group team members.
