Looking through an Aboriginal Lens: Results of the Ngalang Moort Wangkiny Project (100 Families Western Australia), was prepared by the Centre for Social Impact, UWA.

Inspired by the Auckland City Mission’s Family 100 project, the 100 Families WA project is a large scale multi-year study that aims to deeply understand the experience of entrenched disadvantage (or hardship) in Perth, Western Australia. The project intends to not only promote kadadjiny (knowledge), goolyara (inclusion), kadjininy (understanding), and koortkadak (empathy), but to translate research in ways that support effective policy change and positive transformation of everyday life. Situated within the broader 100 Families WA project is the Ngalang
Moort Wangkiny (Our People Yarning) project, which aims to amplify the Aboriginal voices from 100 Families participants in a culturally secure way. The  Aboriginal leadership of Ngalang Moort Wangkiny shows that we are not simply objects of study but active participants, leaders, and scholars working together to shed light on our strengths, resilience, and the challenges we face. This report concerns the Ngalang Moort project specifically, although comprehensive 100 Families reports and shorter bulletins are available for greater detail on the broader study context and findings.
