The Grass Skirt Project is focused on building stronger communities and improving public health and education outcomes in Papua New Guinea, all through sport.
 
"The Hevea Cup and Wellness Exhibition 2020 seeks to improve health and social outcomes for communities across PNG by promoting participation in sporting activities, developing grass roots sports capacity and talent, and facilitating engagement in education about major health issues affecting people in PNG, particularly those experienced by women.
 
"With over 40 stalls and serving up delicious food we will be providing access to prevention, testing and treatment (and linkage to care if necessary) for major health issues affecting people in PNG, including: non-communicable diseases, sexual and reproductive, infant malnutrition or family and sexual violence.
 
"Featuring many special guests and live sport, the Hevea Cup and Wellness Expo will create a safe, inclusive environment for 24 teams of men and women to come together to play rugby league while celebrating the vital role of women in the country," the organisers said.
 
• There will be three full days of rugby games after gates open at 9am for a 10am kick-off. There are 24 teams competing, 12 each men and women.
 
• There is K50,000 in prizes to win with Hevea Passport.
 
• More than 25 NGOs will be on hand to do free eye testing, do health checks and offer talks on mental health and gender based violence.
 
There's a K2 entry fee at the gate and parking is K10 for the day.
