Kaya! (Noongah), Yuwa! (Wongai)
Beananging Kwuurt Institute (BKI) is a not-for-profit Aboriginal organisation located in Queens Park Western Australia.
We offer emergency relief for families in the community who are experiencing hardship, and work to benefit the Aboriginal community and inspire our people to know they are valued and where they are now is not their future.
The Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Congress, with the support of Uniting Church in Australia, established BKI to provide services to Aboriginal people from the site of the former Sister Kate’s Children Home at Queens Park WA. BKI is established as an Aboriginal controlled Corporation.
It was incorporated in September 2007 pursuant to the Uniting Church in Australia Act 1976 (WA).
The Meaning of Beananing Kwuurt
Beananging is Noongar for the beginning of a new day, the part of the day when the sky begins to lighten, but before the sun has risen. Kwuurt is Noongar for heart.
Beananging Kwuurt represents ‘A new day for Aboriginal people’ symbolising the place for healing, caring and nurturing.
Beananging Kwuurt Institute is located on a large piece of land, which we are working to develop. One of our projects is the development of a community garden. We would love some community support in this undertaking! If you are interested in volunteering with us, please send us a message.
We are running a number of outreach programs and services. If you would like to support our work at BKI with a donation or a gift, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
