To RSVP or to express interest in becoming a member of our Committee of Management or if you have any other queries.
The AGM will include updates and presentations about our work and campaigns and two guest speakers:
Emmanual Peni, Coordinator Project Sepik
Emmanuel is Coordinator and Administrator of Project Sepik, a community-based organisation in the East Sepik of Papua New Guinea opposing the proposed Frieda Copper & Gold Mine Application for Mining License. Emmanuel leads the planning of local awareness activities, reporting to communities and advocating on behalf of his people. Significantly Manu and his team gathered more than 6000 signatures from river-dwelling communities located near the mine which became the base for newspaper coverage in PNG. In March this year Project Sepik along with Aid/Watch and Jubilee Australia launched the Save the Sepik campaign. Manu looks forward to meeting Aid/Watch members and sharing the work of Project Sepik at the 2020 AGM.

Working in international development in relation to HIV since 1989, he has been at Union Aid Abroad–APHEDA since 1994 and currently works on their Palestinian and southern Africa programs. Ken will be discussing COVID-19 and Australian Aid at the AGM.
