Since 1974, we’ve been partnering with Indigenous communities and organisations to support them to lead their own development and realise their own goals. Recognised as the custodians of the world’s oldest living culture, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians also face many challenges in their aspirations for a better future. Despite widespread inequality, discrimination and cultural disconnection, we believe that the answers to these challenges come from the communities themselves.
From employing local Indigenous women who facilitate early childhood care and development programs to strengthening Indigenous young people’s connection to culture, we work in partnership with Indigenous communities and organisations to help empower them to take on these challenges.
As a part of our commitment to helping the world’s most vulnerable children, we adapt our successful community-led development approaches from around the world to the needs of each community and context. We invite you to also partner with us to be a part of this journey and our shared story – connecting with, and listening to, the voice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. Together, we can work towards a stronger future for all.
