Hebou Constructions (PNG) Ltd strives to achieve mutually beneficial relationships with the communities that we work in. Hebou believes that community relations offer a significant benefit to all parties through improved communication, consultation and education. In this way, we can address public concern about our construction and understand previously unknown issues and opportunities. Hebou believes that giving back to the communities in which we work is another way of adding value to our company.
We are committed to building stronger links with the community and helping achieve positive outcomes by actively supporting youth and educational projects, charitable and community organisations. Hebou actively supports education and training for future generations of young Papua New Guineans by providing on the-job-training. We currently support 52 students. The Company also sponsors a program called ‘Hebou Constructions (PNG) Ltd Sir George Constantinou, Kt-OBE CSM Memorial Award for Trades Person of the Year’, which started in 2010, first awarded to John Koparipari of Ramu Agri-Industries Ltd, and which is set to continue until 2019.
