In Papua New Guinea 1 in 12 children die before 5 years of age. Kids that survive past the age of 5 are confronted every day with the daily struggles of living in a third world country and this is even more exaggerated in rural areas.

Amongst the many issues is education. Schools are now being re-built and staffed by local indigenous people who are being trained themselves to educate the children. Without basic educational supplies, learning aids, equipment and infrastructure their learning is limited.

Why do these kids need a good education? Like all of us, education is a right not a privilege, and being educated assists in securing jobs in order to provide for our families. It is no different for our neighbours in PNG.

All funds raised go towards the purchase and delivery of educational learning aids and supplies, as well as school furniture and infrastructure for the schools along the Kokoda Track in PNG.

For sponsorship or one off donations / support please call Mark on 0481 256 311
