Miriwoong Language Support Program

Kevin and DilyaiOfficial business

The project Language Maintenance and parts of the project Miriwoong Grammar are kindly funded by the Australian Government. In line with policies and recommendations, MDWg aims at generating activity-based income in addition to these grants. MDWg also has been managing a sponsorship program in order to expand our language services to the Miriwoong people and wider community.

The financial support provided by our partners and sponsors is used entirely for the documentation, maintenance and preservation of the Miriwoong language.

MDWg is a well established, successful, stable and well governed organisation which has history of achievement in its stated aims of documenting and transmitting the Miriwoong language. As the operational arm of the Mirima Council Aboriginal Corporation it is recognised as a registered Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and a Public Benevolent Institution (PBI).

Members of our support program previously included the following organisations – a big thank you to these supporters:

  • Department of Water
  • Department of Environment and Conservation
    Wunan Foundation
  • Yawoorroong Miriuwung Gajerrong Yirrgeb Noong Dawang
  • Kimberley Development Commission
  • St. John Ambulance Volunteers Kununurra

Special thanks to Knapman Films who have been a faithful supporter of MDWg’s work for many years.
