Fourthly, the Foundation is wholly controlled by Europeans in Australia with “very little or no say” from people of Papua New Guinea, particularly those from Kokoda and Koiari. I suggest that four persons (two each from Kokoda and Koiari) who are well vested with thorough knowledge and experience of the Orokaivan and the Koiari culture and the Kokoda Trail Battle be appointed to help identify projects for the funding by the Foundation. Such appointments will indicate that Papua New Guineans are given the opportunities to participate and contribute meaningful to the best interests o their people, and not dictated by Europeans at their own interests.
