Sponsorship


There’s nothing more important than teachers. To become a teacher and teach the next generation, the laws in Papua New Guinea require an education through the 12th grade. We are focused on helping those so close to their goals achieve the final steps in their education. Sponsoring one of our youths will ensure that they may complete their education and pay it forward. Each youth needs five sponsors at $25 a month to successfully complete their educational journey and propel them into the next phase of their lives!

Name: Joe Bore
Gender: Male
Studying: Education
From: Buna

Joe Bore is dedicated to teaching the youngest of children. Over the years he has taught the elementary children of Buna in a makeshift classroom, and under nearby trees. A teacher who was not officially qualified, Joe undertook teacher training at the Kokoda College School of Education in 2016. After many hardships and obstacles, he is about to be placed on the government payroll with the department of education, a well deserved win for this much loved educator. Although he has faced many challenges, Joe is committed to teaching and has always done what is best for his kids. It is our hope that this new facility will provide him with the resources to teach the youth of Buna for many years to come!
