As part of the organization’s member engagement, Nasfund recently participated in the 2022 Mona Festival.

Held in Buka, Autonomous Region of Bougainville, from Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th September 2022, this event brought together traditional groups from across North, Central and South Bougainville, to celebrate the autonomous region’s traditional canoe, known as the Mona.

Over 1,500 people attended the Festival over the 3 days.

According to the Fund’s General Manager Member & Employer Services Anne Wilson, participation at this event provided an avenue to raise awareness on the importance of superannuation, as well as showcasing services on offer by Nasfund.

“As the largest Fund by membership size, we believe it is important that we continually engage with our members wherever they are. The Mona Festival provided one such opportunity.

The Fund’s Buka Member Service Centre took the lead in facilitating our involvement in the Festival, with the Fund coming on board as a minor sponsor for the 3 day event.

Our participation at this event enabled us to engage with our current membership, as well as potential members who may want to join Papua New Guinea’s leading superannuation provider.

Those who visited the Nasfund exhibit were provided an overview of the role of the Fund, as well as the service on offer. Awareness was provided on the services provided to members through our branch and online channels, as well as the value of Nasfund membership through our popular Membership Discount Program (MDP). The Festival also allowed the Fund to speak to potential members, especially those within the Micro and Small to Medium Enterprises (MSME & SME) space.

We would like to thank the Mona Festival Organizers for allowing our participation at this event, and we look forward to working together in ensuring that we promote the important role of superannuation to the next generation of Papua New Guineans.

The Autonomous Region of Bougainville remains an important area of focus for the Fund, particularly as there has been some growth in the amount of economic activity in recent years, largely driven by the MSME and SME sectors.

We remain committed to promoting, and enabling superannuation services to the Autonomous Region of Bougainville today, so that our members are ready for tomorrow.”
