TEAR's Indigenous Support Program. Support TEAR Australia's partnership with Indigenous communities in Australia. ('Trees' theme).
"...to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour." Luke 4:19
Silhouettes of human figures as dancing trees are rejoicing in the Year of Jubilee. Both individuals and the community as a whole are being restored to health. The earth has been restored in of all its abundance and beauty.

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.
