Evaluation of the Dardii Girlz Program - Kwinana
The Dardii Girlz Program was developed by the David Wirrpanda Foundation to improve the quality of life for Indigenous youth by promoting strong role models and healthy life choices. “Dardii” is a Nyoongar word meaning “awesome”.
The Program aims to assist young women to make positive decisions, particularly when faced with challenging situations. It will also promote positive and healthy lifestyle choices to Indigenous female teenagers in Kwinana.
The evaluation, conducted by Kurongkurl Katitjin, aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the Dardii Girlz Program in terms of its proposed initiatives and strategies raising awareness about sexual health and healthy lifestyles in young Indigenous females; and reducing risk taking behaviours.
