Brief Background

Usino-Bundi is the largest, geographically challenging and one of the least developed districts in Madang Province of Papua New Guinea. Majority of the population still live in rural villages and many have not seen any form of basic government services delivered to their villages since independence in 1975.

Today, women and children’s health, bad economy, poor road infrastructure, struggling schools, law and order issues, violence and many other trivial concerns continue to plight the communities of Bundi whilst majority of the people still remain below the poverty level and are illiterate.

Since December of 2013, Vincent Kumura, a local from Bundi with a dual MBA from California, U.S started embarking on community impact projects to help improve the livelihood of his poor and disadvantage people of Bundi in the areas of healthcare, education, sustainable eco-tourism and community services in rural villages.

Since then, Vincent’s work has impacted over 6, 000 rural lives in Usino-Bundi and Gama of Madang Province as far as the border regions of Asaro, Simbu and Jimi. On April 15, 2016, Vincent was the recipient of the Digicel PNG Foundation Men of Honour Community Ingenuity Award for his community efforts in saving a poor and disadvantaged generation.

On October 24, 2016, Kumura Foundation was registered and on February 18, 2017, it was formally launched at Snow Pass, Bundi to continue Vincent’s noble initiatives.
