COMMUNITY AND LIVELIHOOD


CONSTITUENCY 

Daburap Ward Community consist of three sections: Daburap 1 & 2, Bakanap 1 & 2, and Yentanap 1 & 2. Villages in these three sections respectively are: Hohlomkut, Kukandap, Telesha, Hipex and Agita; Humuleng, Sipeti, Doweti, Sangkak, Dalwap and Kombit; and Dakala, Dapeng, Kapethagan, Tikei, Walegan and Yaputbut of the last section.

Although there are three different sections of Daburap Ward community, the type of living standard, challenges and hardships are the same to all. Women, children and men face everything together.

As previously mentioned, the only link between villages is by means of foot tracks (bush tracks). Across rivers and creeks, makeshift bush material footbridges are being built across them for crossing over to the other side. Walking to the Oksapmin Station where Local Level Government Office is takes a whole day which is about 20-30 kilometers.



AGRICULTURE

Subsistence Farming is common in our area as rare modern agricultural methods introduced. Vegetables and crops are heavily grown having a healthy yield. But due to its remoteness, there are limited marketing places to sell our crops and vegetables so they are consumed within the community. 




However, there are only very few opportunities when the locals go out to sell their garden produce in Tabubil and Kiunga of the Western province by the twin otter MAF Aircraft.
