In April 2010 The Voice Inc. became a legally incorporated association.
TVI is managed by a Board of Directors, with full time staff working to implement the programs.
So much hope lies within the young people of Papua New Guinea. If given the opportunity, these young people can rise up to provide solutions to many of the problems that exist in our communities and nation. TVI exists to ensure this becomes a reality.
