In Papua New Guinea, mothers take charge
“Bahá’í teachings brought new values,” said Mr. Bodick, explaining that the women realized they could now be “part of the decision making process” that had been denied to them in the past.

Papua New Guinea - In a simple but striking example of grass roots development, a group of villagers on a remote island some 30 kilometers off Papua New Guinea’s northern coast have funded and built their own medical aid station.
Inspired by the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith on women’s equality and community participation, a circle of mothers in Mom Village on Karkar Island launched the project, which now serves the entire community.
