BioRevive are very proud to announce we have become an official partner of Children’s Ground, who have introduced a groundbreaking and inspiring new approach for Aboriginal communities living in disadvantage.
Children’s Ground provide tailored support programs to Aboriginal families so they can raise resilient, happy children. Children’s Ground believe they can break the cycle of disadvantage by ensuring a strong start to life for the next generation.
The problems of disadvantage in Aboriginal communities have been growing. Children’s Ground are unique in that they address the issues facing Aboriginal children at the start of their lives, rather than leaving things until they become entrenched. Their approach is both long-term and inclusive, with the aim that children grow up in a warm, safe and supportive environment.
Starting with the Mirrarr people (of the northeast of Kakadu National Park and parts of Western Arnhem Land), Children’s Ground and the Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation are engaged in a long-term partnership tackling the issues of extreme poverty.
The Mirrarr people have lived in their part of the Northern Territory for more than forty thousand years and are the custodians of some of Australia’s most beautiful country and famous rock art. They are determined to preserve their people, country, culture and language. Children’s Ground are playing a pivotal role in seeing this happens.
When we, at BioRevive, heard about Children’s Ground, we knew we wanted to help this organisation achieve and support its goals. It’s a simple philosophy yet underpinned with so much love – ‘hold my hand so we can walk this path together’. To this end, BioRevive has donated $20,000 to help them walk the path.
As Australians, we all share the value of family and the importance of raising beautiful and happy children, so why not join us in supporting this worthwhile organisation?
In upcoming blogs, we aim to tell you more about the other organisations we support and the great work they do in making people happier and healthier.
To paraphrase the words of Martin Luther King.
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is:
What can you do for others?
