The Women's Development Project: Indigenous Australia Program: evaluation report

by McMurray L

Year 2012
City Darwin, NT
Institution The Fred Hollows Foundation
Date April 2012


This evaluation report presents findings from the Women's development project (WDP) which began in 2008. The goal of the WDP was to increase self-determination of women in the Jawoyn region, with key objectives to increase: networking and communication; capacity building in communities; opportunities for livelihoods; and partnership building and sharing of knowledge.

The evaluation was conducted by an external consultant appointed by the Fred Hollows Foundation and covered four communities in the Jawoyn region including Manyallaluk, Barunga, Wugularr, and Bulman.

Findings from the evaluation were that significant progress had been made towards the WDP's goal for increased self-determination; and that the communities had the capacity to further strengthen their goals. The WDP was also found to be meeting stated objectives through best practice and contributing towards a sustainable environment.

The evaluation included recommendations for The Fred Hollows Foundation, the Jawoyn Association and Jawoyn Communities, and other stakeholders.
