Marrka Manguwa Project
Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services Council
The Tjiitji Marrka Manguwa 'kids will be strong' story book was developed as part of the Early childhood nutrition and anaemia prevention project. The project was implemented in six remote Aboriginal communities, four in the Northern Territory (NT), one in Cape York in Queensland (Qld) and one in the East Kimberley region in Western Australia (WA). Project planning and development commenced in 2006, with project activities occurring between 2010 and 2012.
This book has been developed in conjunction with a number of women and families in the Aboriginal communities of Balgo, Billiluna and Mulan, known collectively as the Kutjungka region, to assist families in providing nutritious food for their babies and children.
