Kokoda Track Foundation (KTF) has been recognised for Outstanding Achievement (OAA) in The Australian Charity Awards 2018. Now in their sixth year, The Australian Charity Awards have been established to identify, recognise and reward organisations for the exceptional work undertaken through their charitable activities. The Australian Charity Awards are a partner program of The Australian Business Awards (now in their thirteenth year).
Dr Genevieve Nelson, CEO of KTF, says they are proud to have been recognised for their contribution to education, health, livelihoods and leadership in Papua New Guinea.
“Over the past two years, KTF’s Teach for Tomorrow project has trained 2,580 elementary teachers, keeping schools open and more than 90,000 children in school” said Dr Nelson. “We thank the 2018 Australian Charity Awards for their recognition of our tireless work in helping our nearest neighbour, PNG.”
“The program seeks to recognise charities that adopt an innovation culture to achieve optimal levels of impact and social change,” Australian Charity Awards, Program Director, Tara Johnston said.
“In 2018, The Australian Charity Awards are proud to acknowledge the accomplishments of ten organisations for their achievements in specific areas of social need through various charitable initiatives,” Ms Johnston added.
