Malpa is a grass roots organisation focused on improving primary health care and well-being within Aboriginal communities. Our approach is a culturally derived and driven, school-based, curriculum-aligned, health and well-being project for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students in years 3-4 and years 5-6. We use a framework of six key themes.
We work in schools in the ACT, NSW, NT, SA and VIC in communities that have high Aboriginal populations and have invited Malpa to work with them to enable healthier and more positive futures. Our understanding of primary schools and curriculum and our ability to build trusting and collaborative relationships means that we become part of the fabric of the schools.
