Training Rehabilitates Indigenous Prisoners (TRIP) Forward 

A significant and far-reaching goal of the Foundation is to help address the ever-increasing number of incarcerated young indigenous people.  This proposed project is based on providing a future pathway to offenders.  It is based on prison-based training in construction skills.  The aim is to provide at-risk young indigenous people with positive life skills.  It is envisaged that this will lead to further opportunities for attaining skills and possible enterprise opportunities.

As a first step, the use of compressed earth blocks is being considered.  Participants will be introduced to the manufacture of building blocks using a Compressed Earth Block (CEB) machine.  Finished blocks will be used in a wide range of construction activities.   Watch an example of how this might work and what can be achieved by clicking on the photo below.

Solar Flood Lights for Indigenous Kids in Halls Creek

Installing solar powered floodlights in a remote footy oval allows the kids to use the oval at night. This means that the kids can kick their footy in a safer place while reducing the risk of a traffic fatality occurring.  In addition, fewer kids on the street playing mean a safer road for the trucks coming through at night.

Mobile Health Clinic 

Providing health services to remote indigenous communities is challenging.   A mobile health clinic can move around and provide the health care and support/education needed to remote indigenous communities.  The use of a mobile unit can change the lives of Indigenous Australians living in remote communities and improve their well-being by promoting sustainable environmental health practices.

Cool Down and Cook – Halls Creek Aged Hostel

Support for the Halls Creek Aged Care hostel is needed.  This support will improve the services provided to the residence.  It will also support the meals on wheels service in the local community.
