Ela Motors PNG is once again proud to sponsor the Vanagi (Aloha) Koroli Association INC, with a donation of K2, 200.00 worth of trophies on Friday, 17th December 2021, in Port Moresby.
The Ela Motors Area Manager, Mr Bennie Irali, was pleased to present the trophies to the association’s chairman Wapa Willie Vuina on behalf of Ela Motors. These trophies were awarded to the grand final winners of the 2021 Vanagi Aloha Canoe Race.
Mr. Vuina announced that the annual canoe race competition has reached its final stage and saw that it was a massive achievement for the community to see 24 canoes participating in the 2021 competition with the support of Ela Motors.
“Thank you Ela Motors for being our major sponsor for the past two years. This has brought a positive impact to our community and we are very grateful for this assistance”.
CEO of Ela Motors, Mitsuyoshi Okutsu, highlighted that the Vanagi community is a very special and important neighbor to the business at Badili and urged both parties to take the opportunity to create a resilient bond to prosper together.
The Vanagi Aloha Koroli Association is a registered sports group that was formed in 2017 with a membership of 30 unemployed youths within the Badili Vanagi community. Their primary objective is to help prevent unemployed youths from getting involved in criminal activities, drug, and alcohol abuse. The association’s main focus is to engage youths in sporting activities and eventually bring about a change to their mindset and personal conduct within the community.
Ela Motors recognizes that supporting the welfare of its neighboring community through sports and youth development is a paramount concern of the business and strives to honor it in alignment with its corporate philosophy to live, prosper and sustainably grow with the people, communities and the country of PNG.
