Achieving self-reliance, health and quality of life in Papua New Guinea’s Western Province communities
Who We Are
Each executive and board member, team and individual involved with OTDF is an essential part of achieving the goal of allowing the residents of Western Province to have greater choices in mapping out their own direction to live better lives.
What We Do

To date, we have achieved significant outcomes across our investment portfolio and all five pillars of CMCA community development.
OTDF continues to focus on infrastructure delivery for communities to gain easier access to regional centres and government services, and to get produce to markets.
