Amidst the media focus on youth crime...positive youth programs & activities are in danger of being lost.

Wow country. You're so beautiful

I know how much sport means to communities and am hopeful that you will receive help for sporting interactions to continue.

Lp Hayden

Why aren't the Federal Government and the NT government providing funds to support these programs? These programs are much more important than spending millions of dollars on a Voice which will not do anything to assist remote communities!! Write to Paul Murray on SKY NEWS. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคฉ

Maybe employ the unjabbed in communities, so they can work for you!

NPY Women's Council Cooking in aluminium foil dramatically increase chances of late neurological problems like dementia, alzheimers and Parkinsons. Please line the food in baking paper before wrapping in al foil, at least it’s protected then!

Good, strong, long  relationships.  Eva Churchill (Aputula / Finke) &  Suzanne Bryce (NPYWC Child Nutrition)

Great photos and friendship Eva and Suzanne. ๐Ÿค— Suzanne you were AMAZING to work with and inspirational to talk with. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and strengthening communities and strong connections. ๐Ÿค—โฃ

Continuity of care for children, for youths, for men and for women is such a blessing, lasting friendships are made. My son is 36. His homebirth midwife and I remained close friends until Covid got her last year. I miss her dreadfully. Have a photo of her near my kettle so I can talk to her every day.

Me as a European, I have never ever had such meaningful relationships than with indigenous women,they taught me everything about strength ๐Ÿ€and I will never be able to recuperate from what I have received in knowledge and wisdom from them

This reminds me of all those beautiful caring indigenous women I had the privilege to know and work with in the Northern Territory. Great times!

What a beautiful photograph of two beautiful women.

That is so beautiful for you both, with sharing hearts.

This is magnificent! โค๏ธ

Wonderful photos of both women! Amazing.

Wirru! 2 wonderful women

Real commitment there.

Your friendship is a story worth making into a documentary ๐Ÿ˜˜

Community care not outsiders who come & go!!

Fantastic photos great record of dedication

What an amazing contribution to Central Australia!

Love this so much ๐Ÿฅฐ Miss you kungkas xx

How awesome is this. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Wow such beauty in both โค๏ธ

Wow, good to see you Suzie, come to Derby sometime.

Oh wow, how special is this beautiful friendship โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’•

How great, still colleagues and friends

Hi Suzie! Beautiful photo.
