On behalf of Network Kokoda, Charlie Lynn attended the Rotary Club of Richmond and received a generous cheque from President Barry Adams and Past President Rod Rose.
Network Kokoda will use these proceeds to construct a fish farm at Iarowari High School, located in Central Province on the Sogeri Plateau, approximately 45 kilometres from Port Moresby.
Network Kokoda is a key partner in assisting headmaster, Andrew Moava, transform this 500 student Year 9 to 11 school into an Agricultural College. The school facilities comprise of old buildings that housed the Australian Army Signals Unit in 1942 and include the original mess hut, kitchen and cooking preparation area and ablution block.
With a mix of day and boarding students, Network Kokoda has worked alongside teachers and students over the past three years converting vacant land into market gardens which has greatly improved the daily nutrition of the boarding students. The fish farm is the next step in the school’s corporate plan and will see protein added to the daily diets of students.
Network Kokoda is grateful for the close and generous involvement of the directors and members of Richmond Rotary in this important project.
