Galupa - North East Arnhem Land NT

In 2019 along with the support of our sponsors TCP went to the Community of Galupa North East Arnhem Land to construct a safety house for the Women who live there, fulfilling the long standing wishes of Gayili Marika Yunupingu Elder of Galupa.

Healing On Country - Cape York QLD

In November 2019 at the invitation of Hope Vale Elders Cape York QLD, TCP was invited to attend a Mens on Country Healing camp (the first in the Community for some time). From this trip through the Elders we learnt of the need for on Country Culture camps to be conducted on a regular basis (refer to projects page short film Healing on Country). TCP are dedicated to support youth to be with their Elders on traditional Country for the purpose of healing and re connecting with land and Culture.
