Welcome to the website of the Kokoda College. The build has started on the Kokoda College, a state-of-the-art training facility based in Kou-Kou village (Kokoda) in Papua New Guinea. This College will train urgently needed elementary teachers, primary teachers and community health workers for PNG and will train enough of these professionals to meet the needs of the entire Kokoda Track catchment area within its first 3 years of operations. Construction began in October 2013 and the College is scheduled to open its doors at the end of 2014. This site has information for those wishing to get involved – by making a financial contribution to the College or by providing much needed resources and supplies.
