Mudgin-Gal's "Black Women's Awards for Achievement"

A pat on the back, a word of encouragement and a little recognition is what keeps the hundreds of volunteer Aboriginal community workers going year after year.

The Awards are a reminder to the women that their contribution is valued by their people. The Award raises the self-esteem of the volunteer community and recognises the sacrifices they endure whilst battling the every day experience of being a Koori.
