Sohe District

Sohe women think business

The two week course was facilitated by the SME Corporation and involved participants from women’s groups and church organisations within the district. The majority of the graduates had already started their own ventures – what they required was business management support to enable them to grow more efficiently and effectively.

Kokoda schools get new classrooms

The new double classrooms provide over 140 elementary and primary students with a more comfortable learning environment, and encourage girls and boys to attend lessons and stay in school. To provide clean water, a 9000 litre water tank has been attached to each building.

Launch ceremonies were held at both schools on 31 August, attended by students, teachers, local officials, community members and representatives from the Australian High Commission.
