On 26 January, we want to celebrate and honour the people we work with here in Australia, particularly our work with Indigenous communities.
Through the Linking Hands
program, World Vision works with Indigenous communities from as far and wide as suburban Sydney all the way to the heart of Central Australia. Our work involves community led projects that empower Indigenous Australians to overcome injustice and disadvantage.
World Vision recently supported three proud and innovative young Indigenous Australians as youth representatives to the 2011 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Durban, South Africa. Read Abbey’s post
about how she is using her voice to create positive change for all Australians.
There is more to explore about the Australia Programs on our Indigenous Australia webpage
You can watch a video about early childhood care and development activities in
one of the Warlpiri communities of Central Australia, where local women and men are nurturing strong, healthy and happy Warlpiri kids.
Did you know that World Vision also works more broadly in Australian communities, supporting children by mentoring in public schools through Kids Hope
? Caring adults invest time in children to build self-confidence, wellbeing and increase their learning.
If you want to give, become a Linking Hands
And most importantly have a very Happy Australia Day
