By facilitating, strengthening and nurturing the ties on education, health and leadership initiatives, between the people of Australia and Papua New Guinea - Network Kokoda is honouring the legacy of the Australians and Papua New Guineans who served in the War in the Pacific (1942-1945).
Network Kokoda was established as a not-for-profit company by the hon. charlie lynn to honour the legacy of our kokoda veterans and the png wartime carriers.
The use of the word “Network” in “Network Kokoda” is intentional. It highlights the value of a network, a village, a tribe in undertaking the projects of the group (that are intended to honour the legacy of Papua New Guineans and World War 2 Kokoda veterans alike). The organisation subscribes to the principles developed by the PNG Department of Community Development which, according to former Minister, Dame Carol Kidu, is based on local communities working together to develop sustainable initiatives which generate income to invest in their future.
Network Kokoda is registered in Australia and Papua New Guinea.
