Moriarty Foundation partners with Bridging the Gap Foundation for key projects in 2019
It's been a busy year for the Moriarty Foundation, which announced partnerships with the Bridging the Gap Foundation’s HealthLAB for key projects in 2019. Earlier this month Minister for Indigenous Health, the Hon Ken Wyatt AM MP announced funding to support the Indi Kindi’s continuing operations in Borroloola and Robinson River, NT. HealthLAB will run its mobile pop-up experience for kids under five and their families in these communities.
The Moriarty Foundation’s Indi Kindi program supports young First Australian children’s health and wellbeing by focusing on their strengths to improve their social, literacy and numeracy skills and help them better prepare for school. The program has reached 78 per cent of all children living in Borroloola and Robinson River.
This funding from the Australian Government was in addition to the $2.7M jointly received by both the Moriarty Foundation and Bridging the Gap Foundation. This funding will go towards supporting the partnership between John Moriarty Football and HealthLAB to deliver football and HealthLAB in six communities in the Northern Territory to encourage healthier lifestyles through better nutrition and physical activity. This was announced back in March 2019.
