Bridging the gap for Indigenous young people

In Kempsey, on the NSW mid-north coast, where there is a large community of Aboriginal people, Mercy Works Inc. is supporting two new programmes initiated by the Dunghutti Elders.

The first is an education mentoring programme for Aboriginal adolescents as they make the often difficult transition from primary to secondary school, while the second is a programme to support young women at risk of violence and suicide.
