AHED is a team living in a remote Aboriginal community responding to local initiatives to resource and empower local people. AHED facilitates local development including economic solutions. While economic solutions underpin the practical needs of remote indigenous communities, often this help is needed just in order to implement social change. The AHED project supports Indigenous visionaries to implement all kinds of initiatives in their local community in a way that they retain control, and together we challenge systemic issues and social injustices. Together with our clients (and their families) we are discovering ways for the local Yolngu people to impact the health, independence, purpose, control and confidence of their people.
Social Enterprises and visions have been explored or facilitated by AHED.
With our support our clients have stopped a sewage pipeline to traditional hunting grounds, started a community education and research organisation, and developed a program that rebuilds Indigenous health.
