"I believe if we can empower young people and build up their confidence and self-esteem that it has the power to transform them into becoming strong leaders able to achieve anything they want in life."
We are three strong Aboriginal women who are seeking to take a new pathway in facilitating Indigenous people to create change for themselves.
To reach out to elite sports people, singers and celebrities throughout the world and have them volunteer to become mentors, Deadly Guardians, to 1000’s of children every day at school, as an online avatar.
To empower children, through support of their Deadly Guardian, to become emotionally resilient so that suicide does not become an option in their life.
Youth suicide can be the culmination of one or many things, that leads a child to take their life.
An Indigenous Children's Helpline
With the development of an Indigenous children’s help line, that will take into account all the various Aboriginal cultures and Lores from around Australia and the Torres Strait, we will create a means for children to reach out through their online mentor or Deadly Guardian without, fear of retribution nor shame.
Elders and leaders will determine the challenges and the solutions for their people in their clan or community.
Our initiatives have been developed to be co-designed by each community or clan allowing ownership and direction by the community or clan Elders and leaders themselves.
