In 1985 Larry George, was transferred to PNG from Sydney Australia, as Manager of the Bank of South Pacific. He saw the urgent need of youth on the streets of Port Moresby and in 1993 called a meeting with businessmen, church leaders and government officers with the aim of commencing a Port Moresby City Mission. He shared the vision to those in attendance and became the Mission founder and Executive Director.
For 12 years the Port Moresby City Mission has been quite successful in helping many youth who have benefited from the training and support of the City Mission programs. With the success in Port Moresby it was decided that the Mission should expand its operation into Lae.
The “Malolo” Screen Printing Shop was later established in the vacant shop area downstairs and now produces high quality hand printed T-shirts, garments and other items for the community. Malolo Prints has now been relocated to New Life Skills Training Centre outside of Port Moresby. This continues to provided training and employment for young men off the streets.
