Post Courier | February 14, 2017

A SMALL to medium enterprise (SME) in Bulolo, Morobe Province is having a positive impact on youths in this area.

TRocks Construction Ltd  owned by Berldon Timah is a four-month old small scale alluvial mining company. Mr Timah said to date the company has created jobs for 48 workers who have been rostered on two shifts. He said business has been good but more could be achieved particularly for the youths in these rural areas through government intervention.

Apart from this venture, Mr Timah has established a small foundation in the area which provides help for the local schools, not just in this area but to neighboring Eastern Highlands Province as well. Timah says of the revenue generated from his projects 10 per cent goes towards the foundation’s activities.

Meanwhile, the foundation, with support from Mr Timah’s company has provided help by assisting disadvantaged communities with road projects and other basic services.

The foundation has also funded school infrastructure and supplies in the Eastern Highlands and Morobe Provinces.

Mr Timah said all his work was not to gain glory but to help give back to the community.

    Good,why not such can occure for Sandaun Province,if our political and administration leaders can assist the people and alleviate poverty rather than thinking of themselves and funding theoritical applications from Waigani.

    Hi As a member of the Bulolo Community, am amazed in scheming through this article, but is it not too early to talk of such achievements?

    For Wau & Bulolo Towns are some funny places to live and work in and most youths fall short of such benefits,
