Tomcar Australia supports the Kurdiji initiative on Indigenous youth mental health and suicide prevention.
The Kurdiji Project is summed up best by Warlpiri Elder, Steve Wanta Jampijinpa Patrick:
“Kurdiji means ‘shield’ for us Warlpiri, it’s initiation ceremony as well. It’s meant to teach people to look at life and really protect life – shield them off from all the elements of negative things of the world. This app will give hope through the way Kurdiji brings out the best in challenging life and in challenging ourselves too.”
“This app would try to challenge something like suicide within young people in indigenous communities. It will do really good things and bring hope to the communities.”
Tomcar Australia acknowledges First Nations Peoples as custodians of the land and pays respect to their Elders past and present.
Irish Bentley are proud to be a part of the Tomcar Family, and to support this extremely worthwhile initiative.
