'Fuzzy Wuzzy Angel' Scholarships Project
KTF supports over 450 elementary, primary, secondary and tertiary students via scholarships. The scholarships cover students’ tuition fees, educational resources, uniforms, food, and boarding (where applicable). Scholarships are awarded to students for their schooling life and make an enormous difference to families struggling to pay school fees in PNG.
Kokoda College Project
In 2014 we continue with our flagship project - the construction and opening of the Kokoda College. Already in its first stage of construction, the Kokoda College will be a state-of-the-art training facility based in Kou Kou village. It will offer courses in Elementary & Primary Teaching and Community Health Work. There is a lack of training facilities throughout PNG and the Kokoda College is already becoming a beacon of hope for the region and the nation. >> Read more >>
Teacher Training project
Local primary and elementary teachers are urgently needed for schools situated in many communities. In partnership with the PNG Education authorities, KTF has trained 56 elementary teachers in the Certificate of Elementary Teaching, and is also supporting members of the communities along the track to train as primary teachers via the PNG Diploma of Primary Teaching. These teachers will return to their home villages to operate the schools after they have graduated. >> Read more >>

The Foundation also supports elementary teachers via its Teacher Salary Incentives project. This initiative, established in 2011, ensures elementary schools along the Kokoda Track remain open. In 2014, the Foundation is supporting 25 qualified elementary teachers. >> Read more >>
