EON Thriving Communities
Project status: In progress
Royalties for Regions is supporting the expansion of the EON Foundation Thriving Communities Program, with $1.64 million to deliver this multi-dimentional program to an additional six remote Aboriginal communities in WA.
EON Foundation has formed partnerships with Kimberley communities of Warmun, Wankatjungka, Ngalapita, Kalumburu, Woolah (Doon Doon) and Bidyadanga to implement the Thriving Communities program.
The Program's aim is to improve the well-being of Aboriginal West Australians by providing resources, education and training.
Over five years, the Program will provide community school children and their families with:
- A practical introduction to growing vegetables and fruit
- Guidance to cooking nutritious meals with garden produce
- Skills to promote better health and hygiene.
Thriving Communities encourages community support and involvement, and promotes sustainability of program outcomes now and into the future.
