Indigenous Australia

  1. Participants in World Vision’s Young Mob Leadership Program gain cultural knowledge and skills to lead and inspire their Indigenous peers.
  2. Our Warlpiri Early Childhood Care and Development Project aims to improve the health and wellbeing of young children in four remote Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory.

We create strong partnerships to see kids growing up happy, healthy and strong in thriving Indigenous Australian communities. We work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities who have invited us to join them in achieving positive and lasting change.

World Vision first worked with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Australians in 1974 and our involvement has continued to grow. As a child-focussed agency, we work for the best interests of children. We do this by supporting families and communities to gain the knowledge, skills and access to services they need to achieve their goals and overcome disadvantages.
