Kokoda Track Foundation (KTF) is an international aid organisation working in Papua New Guinea. KTF supports communities in PNG overcome some of the tremendous challenges they face today. From a lack of adequate health care, to the half a million children who are unable to attend school because of the lack of teachers, resources, infrastructure and government capacity, KTF aims to make a tangible impact in the lives of the most vulnerable.
We run programs in the vital areas of education, health, livelihoods, and leadership across more than 45 communities in the Oro and Central Provinces. These programs aim to train high quality teachers and community health workers, provide these professionals with mentoring and professional development opportunities, build educational and health infrastructure, fund the ongoing maintenance and resourcing of schools and aid posts, and provide remuneration to teachers and health workers across rural regions. Our livelihoods program aims to generate sustainable income-generating opportunities for women in remote areas via investment in state-of-the-art solar technology and agriculture.
We also run a national leadership program, the Archer Leadership Scholarships, with final year tertiary students from across PNG, finding and fostering the next generation of leaders.
KTF is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (9.1.1 overseas aid fund) and is a full member of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID). KTF is also accredited with the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade Australia-NGO Cooperation Program.
