Rugby Union Benefits from Hardware Sponsorship

Anitua Hardware is the proud Major Sponsor of the Morobe Rugby Union. Retail Operations Manager (PNG), Jenny Kusa reports that the K10,000 sponsorship has helped the sporting association host tournaments and encourage youth participation. The association includes both men’s and women’s teams with players participating in the Puk Puk 7’s as well as other tournaments around PNG.

"Our aim as sponsors is not only to promote our business in the Momase and Highlands Regions but to use the sponsorship as a vehicle to raise awareness amongst players and the public on the wrongs of violence against women which is very much in accord with our Elimination of Violence Against Women program," says Kusa. Anitua Retail, which comprises supermarket and hardware stores across PNG has a strong reputation for not only recruiting and promoting women but being very vocal about women’s human rights.
