Wewak is the town of a linguistically and culturally diverse province of Papua New Guinea called East Sepik. SPES’s (The Sepik Partnership and Engagement Strategy) goal extends beyond this province to another province called Sandaun, which borders with Indonesia. Together these two provinces speak almost 250 languages. SPES desires to work with the Bibleless languages within these two provinces.

On February 21st, the annual International Mother Language Day was observed by SPES through a scheduled event with a Teacher’s college nearby and a display in town.
