60 seconds with … Linbert Nosuri

Ever wanted to know what it’s like to work in international aid? In this special series, we introduce you to our many dedicated staff members working behind the scenes and on the ground, in Australia and overseas.

We hope you enjoy meeting #TeamChildFund!

 

My name is Linbert Nosuri.

I’m the Senior Project Officer for the HOPE Project and Stronger Justice, Communities Project at ChildFund Papua New Guinea.

My role involves ensuring the smooth operation of project activities that help reduce the widespread, violent abuse of children and women’s rights in Papua New Guinea.

I’ve been at ChildFund since 2016.

ChildFund’s Linbert Nosuri works with communities in PNG to promote children and women’s rights.

My most inspiring moment at ChildFund was travelling seven hours to one of the most remote areas of Abau district to conduct a two-week long training, and learning that ChildFund was the first INGO to deliver training to the community there.

The things I love most about my job are imparting what I have gained to the communities I work with, through training. I also love finding ways to overcome challenges and learning about new cultures through working with different communities, and imparting new knowledge and skills to my team.

When I was a child I wanted to be a banker.

The country I’d most like to visit is Fiji.

The top 3 things I’d take with me in an emergency would be … I only need two things: my kids and my husband.

My favourite dish/cuisine is the traditional “mumu” at my own home.

I’m really good at playing basketball.

I can’t live without water.

I’m looking forward to helping provide the much needed guidance to my team to carry out activities. I’m also looking forward to facing and overcoming any challenges that may come our way.
