The Da Ngimalmin Project

The Da Ngimalmin project was born from the results of the Human Rights Commission Settlement of 2012 with the Thamarrurr region. This case recognised an underspend in funding and a lack of support for education in the region.

The project objective is to establish an improved approach to education and training by bringing the community and education systems together.

The project encompasses all aspects of a person’s education, from infant,

early childhood, through to adulthood.

Da Ngimalmin (the roots/foundation of everything, Murrinhpatha) were also successful in gaining funding from the Northern Territory Government to open a Child and Family Centre. The centre is one of 10 in the Northern Territory. The centre aims to support families and reconnect children with the community and Country while developing and strengthening traditional knowledge systems.
