Kokoda College

Hope for rural communities

This year, Joyce has made four trips to the Kokoda College from her village in the middle of the Kokoda Trail, crossing high rivers during the rainy season and trekking 50km each way via one of the country’s most arduous and gruelling tracks.

Over on the other side of the country, Jason from Togoa village, in Western Province, travels 4 hours each day to get to the Balimo College, paddling 40km in a dinghy, followed by a 1.5 hour walk to reach the campus. He does not have relatives in Balimo and therefore must commute each day.
