Ngalla Maya Childrens Camp

The children will be reminded that going to school is an important pathway to a better life after school.

The outcome of the camp is for these children to achieve a sense of pride, self-esteem and connecting young people to culture, an opportunity to speak about any issues they maybe experiencing and to return home ready to return to school. The social return of the camp is reconnection with country, culture, and language.

We believe working with these children will assist to move them from the cycles of crime and poverty.

The camps focus is on continuation of education, health, hygiene, attending school, healing, positive life choice and developing a positive sense of self and reconnecting with the aboriginal culture.

Many of the children have lost hope, we would like to help break the cycles of crime, drugs, domestic violence, and poverty. The children will be reminded that going to school is an important pathway to a better life after school; on returning home after the camp it is expected that these children will be ready to return to school.

The camp was a great success with the children, many of which were directly affected by suicide of a close young family member.

All the boys who attended are living below the poverty line with family members incarcerated.  The camp gave the boys hope and developed trust and self-esteem.  We still have contact with many of the boys, developing self-esteem and self-worth we believe is beneficial in breaking the cycle of  crime and poverty.

The other outcome of the camp is for these children to achieve a sense of pride, self-esteem and connecting young people to culture; an opportunity to speak about any issues they maybe experiencing, and to return home ready to return to school. The social return of the camp is reconnection with country, culture and language.

Should you have any ideas on how we can implement this program and get this program off the ground I’m more than happy to chat with you and meet with you.
