Our 2021-2026 Strategic Direction
A locally empowered approach to improving community health and prosperity has motivated Kyeema members since our establishment in 2003. This feeling of empowerment, one that is often felt at the beginning of a new day, is captured in the meaning of the word Kyeema – an Australian Aboriginal word describing a beautiful dawn. After a year of consulting widely, and with much gratitude to our hard-working staff and volunteers, we are proud to share the future direction of Kyeema. Our new Strategic Plan (SP) for July 2021 – June 2026 embraces the ideals of strong partner collaboration and technological innovation to support sustainable social, economic and environmental development. Our approach is aligned with the One Health and One Welfare movements which seeks to support healthier people, animals and environments using shared systems and resources.
A New Vision
A world where partnerships catalyse innovation and enrich lives.
A New Mission
Working to improve the health and prosperity of marginalised communities and their environments.
New vision and mission, same motivation
Kyeema has a vision for a world where partnerships catalyse innovation and enrich lives. Our mission is working together to improve the health and prosperity of marginalised communities and their environments.
We support and work with local partners to address locally identified problems. We are champions of innovative, inclusive technological approaches that lead to transformative and sustainable change in communities.
Our programs support marginalised families, specifically women and children, to improve their food, nutrition, health, and economic security.
We promote and scale opportunities for improved health and prosperity in three key focus areas: 1) Nutrition, Health, and Livelihoods; 2) Resilient Communities; and 3) Innovation.
Strengthened commitment to a ‘One Health and One Welfare’ approach
Our work is informed by a ‘One Health and One Welfare’ approach, a collaborative framework that recognises the interdependence of humans, animals and the natural environments in which they live. This means that the projects we support must be sustainable for both humans and their natural ecosystems. By drawing on our technical expertise and networks we help to build capacity and resilience in local communities and support local ownership of solutions that use shared systems and resources.
Kyeema’s Impact Pathway
Many resource-limited communities deal with entrenched cycles of poverty. They rely on their surrounding environments and local economies for food, shelter and income generation. There is an urgent need for locally driven development solutions to improve the health and prosperity of communities, while simultaneously protecting the wellbeing of animals and the natural environment.
