The Morobe Rural Housing project is being coordinated by former Huon Gulf MP Sasa Zibe to help families in the district build better homes and improve the people's lives.
Prime Minister Peter O'Neill was invited by the community to officially launch the project at the handover of the project's operational plan manuals to fourteen local level government wards in the district at the weekend.
"Housing is a basic need for our people, and I commend your community and Sasa Zibe for taking a lead role," the Prime Minister said.
"I have known him since 2006 when he was an MP and Minister, as one of the best and strongest leaders of our country."
O'Neill added that the government was directly funding every district with K10 million through the District Services Improvement Program. "We are building infrastructure in our country because we want our people in rural areas and provinces to get benefits and services like concrete roads.
"We want to build concrete roads not only in cities like Lae, but all around the country in rural areas, where they will last a lifetime."
Separately, O'Neill visited the Eu Primary School in Huon-Gulf, where he had been invited to see progress at the Tuition Fee Free Education Policy.
"Our TFF policy is working and benefiting many remote schools like Eu. Through our this policy, there are more than one million additional children in schools.
"These are children who never had a chance for an education before, but now they are in school. The policy takes the burden from parents to pay school fees who can use that money to meet the needs of their families," O'Neill said.
