Dhumba is TEAR's program to support Indigenous projects and partners within Australia. “Dhumba” is a Woi Wurrung word for “talk, tell, speak”. We aim to talk together, tell the stories and speak out with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
TEAR's Dhumba program:
- Supports Christian organisations training Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in community development
- Provides seed funding for small community initiatives
- Provides ways of bringing Indigenous and non-Indigenous people together.
For $25, you can make a donation to the Dhumba program. You'll receive a beautiful card that has an illustrated biblical reflection of Luke 4:18-19 by the Indigenous artist Safina Stewart.
