This year we are contining our Pawa Givim Meri project in nine villages along the Kokoda Track. Via Pawa Givim Meri we run small business workshops, cooking classes, and literacy training with women's groups in villages, assisting them to earn an income from the trekking industry. The women are establishing permanent shop fronts from which they can sell their food and products to passing trekkers. >> Read more about it here >>
The Foundation also supports training and skills development of men and women from the Kokoda region via our constuction and other trades projects. 30 local villagers recently spent 2 weeks with Australian volunteers and were trained in carpentry, building, and mechanics. We also support small business training including basic accounting and bookkeeping principles. >> Click here to read more about our livelihoods projects >>
