Bush Medijina is a place where corporate, government and philanthropic organisations come together with indigenous people to affect real change.
Funding from Groote Eylandt and Bickerton Island Enterprises (GEBIE) allows our program to continue impacting social outcomes for our local communities.
Together with GEBIE and Groote Eylandt Aboriginal Trust (GEAT), we offer real employment pathways for indigenous women, as well as a shared commitment to advocating for Warningakalina women’s voices in community affairs.
Bush Medijina is working closely with local company, GEMCO South32, to ensure a positive legacy on Groote Eylandt long after mining has ceased. We share a commitment to impacting social change across the archipelago; improving lives now, and for generations to come. Through our community partnership we are creating a better future for our Groote Eylandt communities
The support of Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) and their network of business advisors (such as early-stage investment firm, Investible), has provided Bush Medijina with invaluable business support, allowing us to take our program from a small shed on Groote Eylandt to an international audience.
Logistically speaking, our location on a small island in the Gulf of Carpentaria creates many challenges. We are truly grateful for the support of Sea Swift, providing us with sponsored shipping, allowing us to maintain reasonable manufacturing and delivery costs for our customers.
ASAC’s Bush Medijina team are highly motivated to seek out every partnership opportunity with State and Federal Government programs to close the gap and reduce indigenous disadvantage. ASAC has delivered many successful Government funded projects in the past three years, and we will continue to strive for outcomes in this space through our Bush Medijina program.
