Indi Kindi evaluation

Framing the benefits of Indi Kindi

Deloitte Access Economics’ evaluation on the breakthrough education, health and social impacts of Indi Kindi, has demonstrated that the Indigenous-led early years program is equipping a generation of Indigenous children with the tools to break cycles of disadvantage.

The evaluation highlighted Indi Kindi’s unique methodology that blends traditional cultural methods with established Western constructs, as an exemplar in the early years sector for Closing the Gap for Indigenous children.

Barhava Report

The Barhava Report is an independent assessment of the impact Indi Kindi has demonstrated in Borroloola and Robinson River, two very remote Northern Territory Indigenous communities with complex needs and disadvantages.

The Report outlines how the program is delivered and its methodology, the communities where it operates, challenges the program faces, and what makes Indi Kindi successful. It also makes recommendations for the future sustainability and expansion of the program.

Sharing the Seeds

This book was written by a group of women from Borroloola, a small community in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Northern Territory. They gathered on Centre Island in June 2021 for a bush camp to yarn up how they stand tall and strong in difficult times. They share stories about how they care for each other and grow up their children, to help their families and community grow strong and healthy.

This book is a collection of their strengths, skills and knowledges that help them weather the storms of life. This is women’s wisdom from Borroloola.

State of Play Report

Engagement between the major sporting codes and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians provides a significant opportunity for mutual benefit.

This report prepared by Professional Footballers Australia on behalf of John Moriarty Football benchmarks the progress being made by sporting codes to highlight football’s missed opportunity and to call for a reignition of football’s Indigenous engagement.

Tree of Life Book

Tree of Life

“Tree of Life: Growing up Strong Children – Borroloola Way” is a collection of unearthed stories that was co-created with the women of Borroloola, a remote community in the Gulf of Carpentaria in Northern Territory. It shares their wisdom on parenting skills, knowledges, beliefs, and abilities to grow their children up strong, and the history of this wisdom from their family and community.

The stories were compiled by the Indi Kindi team during Tree of Life workshops, facilitated by Sudha Coutinho and Lucy Van Sambeek from Telling Story and supported by Artback NT.
