Dame Carol Kidu is the Patron of the Foundation and has worked with Ginigoada to ensure it has remained true in purpose and supportive of Government Policy.
Since 2002 the Ginigoada Foundation has been placing young man & women into short term skills development training.
These young men & women are drawn from all part of the City of Port Moresby, with particular focus on those who are disadvantaged or otherwise unable to cover their own cost of such training.

The major strategy at the time consisted of indoor residual spraying of houses throughout most parts of the country except for the highlands region where there was no malaria and mass drug administration (MDA) using Chlroquine. It was the single biggest vertical programme within the National Department of Health (NDoH) and was managed through four regional malaria control units.
