EON thriving communities program update

Date posted: 30 November -0001

The Eon thriving communities program provides practical, hands-on health and hygiene education as well as assisting in the development of community gardens for several remote Indigenous communities in the Kimberley.

The five year program, delivered by the EON Foundation, focuses on four key components:

Looking forward to 2014, the areas of Djarindjin/Lombadina, Beagle Bay, One Arm Point (Ardyaloon), Looma, Noonkanbah and Kadjina are on their way to graduating the program halfway through this year. Exit programs are put in place, to ensure that the communities are well equipped to continue gaining the benefits from the program.

The communities of Wangkatjungka, Ngalapita, Warmun, Doon Doon, Kalumburu and Bidyadanga are in the second year of the five year program and are enjoying the construction and infrastructure development stages implemented last year.

The EON Foundation has also commenced a two year pilot program with the women inmates at West Kimberley Regional Prison, which has already seen a number of successful workshops being held.
