Ultimately, success will be achieved when a baby born in Lockhart River has as much opportunity to succeed in life as a child born elsewhere in our nation.
Working in partnership with the Queensland State government, we have created the Lockhart River Wellbeing Project Pilot. The Pilot provides the opportunity to partner with the federal government and corporate Australia and secure up to $250,000 per year in matched funds. That means every dollar invested in new programs in Lockhart River will be matched during this time.
Partnerships with like-minded supporters sharing their experience to innovate programs. Bringing together the voices of Design, Intent, and experience and creating solutions.
Build the Kuunchi Kakan Centre as the vibrant hub of the community for families. Develop innovative projects that are co-designed with locally-led solutions.
Building our Monitoring and Evaluation systems for continued growth and success of our work. Supporting other communities through collaboration and shared learning. Build organisational sustainability.
Not simply a service provider organisation, the Puuya Foundation also acts as a backbone organisation for the community, providing services and advice to government, nonprofit, and research organisations looking to make positive connections that align with the Lockhart River community’s goals itself.
