Church Partnership Program

What is the Church Partnership Program (CPP)?



It is a partnership between The Australian Government, SAID and The Salvation Army in Papua New Guinea, which seeks to strengthen institutions, such as churches, in building capacity for community development. The Salvation Army is one of seven churches in Papua New Guinea supported by the Church Partnership Program. 

CPP ensures churches are practising and promoting accountable, transparent and participatory governance and that the communities' livelihoods are enhanced by the quality and reach of service delivery.
