The Kyeema Foundation (KYEEMA) is an Australian enterprising community organisation that partners with governments, NGOs and the private sector to improve livelihoods of vulnerable communities – often rural, marginalised communities, where people are disproportionately impacted by economic, socio-political, and environmental forces. Our vision is to empower communities. We achieve this through supporting local partnerships and use of local resources. KYEEMA is an Australian Aboriginal word which means ‘of the dawn’. It captures the vision of our organisation – the feeling of empowerment one can experience at the beginning of a new day.
