Kinship Empowerment Program (KEP)

Kinship Empowerment Program (KEP) operate various activities that include engagement and meetings with key stakeholders, visits to school, delivering workshops, community gatherings targeted at students in Years 4, 5 and 6.

Koya Aboriginal Corporation collaborates with five primary schools with Aboriginal student population of over 50. The schools are located in the southern Perth corridor with a total school population of up to 250 students.

Last year, our most esteemed achievement is the employment of 41 people local community people, of which 37 were Aboriginal. Most individuals are Kinship Champions providing essential connection to our community.

KEP workshops that draw the greatest community attendance and support include: Family networks and their linkages to others; Racial Identity and Self Esteem; Helping Families Heal; Mental Health First Aid; and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training.
KEP makes inroads into school environments via activities such as KEP breakfast clubs and the KEP homework clubs. Such success KEP established one homework club entirely outside the school environment and in doing so created a strong culturally secure space.

KEP’s theme “Every Day Counts” and promotional materials were developed such as stickers distributed to over 250 students and 4 community gathering producing large painted banners.
