Women for Wik: What's Working: http://www.whatsworking.com.au/
There is a widespread damaging myth, promoted by media reporting that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders continue to have problems because nothing that is being done is working. These 'failures' are then used to justify policies and practices that repeat past mistakes and ignore the evidence of what does work. Womenforwik wanted to shift these damaging views by offering examples and evidence of the many programs that do work because they are run by and with Indigenous people.
So www.whatsworking.com.au is a new website, designed to show both the public and governments the evidence through listing projects that work. We have three categories:
1. What's working now- successful projects that are run/controlled by Indigenous people
2. What was working - (until it was defunded or ran out of funds), projects like those above that were working well till policy changes (like CDEP) and/or short term funding closed them down.
3. Good work! - that acknowledges good stuff that happens in government Departments or other non Indigenous organisations that involve Indigenous decision making.
We need people to tell us about projects that fit in those categories. check the website or email me with as much detail as you have, in particular contact details for the project.
