Enterprise & Socio-Economic Development
Socio-economic development initiatives promote access to the economy for all people.
- Enterprise development includes initiatives to assist and accelerate the sustainability of local enterprises and focuses on a business incubator in the Kimberley area.
- The socio-economic focus is on education support programmes, including:
- early childhood development, as part of a creche support programme
- numeracy and literacy interventions at a primary school level
- support for mathematics and science programmes at secondary schooling level
- a scholarship programme for engineering related studies at tertiary level.
These programmes will continue for the 20 year life of the project and will focus on local communities in Kimberley, Riverton, Ritchie and Barkly West.
