Indi Kindi celebrates 1 year in Tennant Creek
September 14, 2022
In July 2022 we celebrated 12 months of successful Indi Kindi delivery in the Tennant Creek region in remote central Northern Territory.
A huge thank you to our wonderful local educators for all their hard work and dedication as well as our supportive Community Advisory Group for guiding us to develop a locally-led program that responds to the needs of the community. They have shown that an initiative that is co-designed within an authentic Aboriginal worldview, is able to successfully close the gap and have immense long-term benefits for our children and community.
We are deeply grateful for the support of our partners to help us expand the impact of Indi Kindi, especially UNICEF Australia.
UNICEF Australia Chief Executive Officer, Tony Stuart, said, “UNICEF Australia and Moriarty Foundation are united in our belief that all Australian children should have an equal opportunity to realise their developmental potential. Working collaboratively, we are committed to helping to improve outcomes for children and to addressing multigenerational disadvantage in remote Aboriginal communities.”
Indi Kindi’s success was made possible thanks to a decade of developing an innovative early years model that combines best practice early education with cultural knowledge and local languages through a locally-guided Aboriginal Mind + Spirit + Country worldview.
In 2022 we celebrate 10 years of Moriarty Foundation delivering transformational change in some of Australia’s most disadvantaged and remote Aboriginal communities.
