Our mission

Our mission

Donald Thomas and Jason Gardiner

To create a positive input to Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island community resilience, health, wellbeing and cultural identity through enabling the sustainability of Indigenous languages.

 

Our objectives

We contribute to the health and well being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities through the services we deliver, by providing direct relief from the suffering and distress that arises from the loss of Indigenous languages and the subsequent alienation from cultural heritage and Indigenous identity. Our programs seek to facilitate the self-determination, resilience and confidence of Indigenous communities to develop their own specific solutions that foster healthy, engaged and independent Indigenous communities.

We strive to advance the sustainability of Indigenous Languages and to increase the participation of Indigenous peoples in all aspects of their language documentation and revitalisation through the Documenting and Revitalising Indigenous Languages (DRIL) training program, resource sharing, networking and raising community awareness.
