Working with the Mowanjum Aboriginal CommunityACNC Registered Charity Tick

The Boab Network is a not-for-profit organisation which is 100 percent volunteer run. The Network was formed as the response to a suicide crisis in the small Kimberley community of Mowanjum in 2007. After consulting with the community, the Network decided to run school holiday programs for the young aboriginal people in the community. From there, the role of the Network has expanded to support and work with the community in other areas. The Boab Network operates on the value of relationships and two-way learning. They act as partners working with the Mowanjum aboriginal people to help them achieve their goals of economic independence and social sustainability.

There are many issues that we have to face and we have to do these alone. But the support we have from the Boab Network has helped. They never came in to do this work for us but gave us support and strength to do it for ourselves.

I had a few ideas. I wanted to engage the kids with music and keep them out of trouble and stuff…  When we first met the Boab Network, we told them what we wanted to achieve, what we wanted to become in our Band. I think they really helped us achieve our goal.
