Mees works with:
The Eduarda Foundation
Mrs. Eduarda Acabo Edubas is the woman behind the Eduarda Foundation’s strong alliance among women victims of domestic violence to move on. She had been a victim of domestic violence for many years since she’s 16 years old and until now being married to the same man, her perpetrator husband.
 
She gathered vulnerable women in her community under her wings, taught them how to move on, empowered them to be independent. The Eduarda Foundation has grown from 5 members to more than 30 adult women whom have tried their best to tackle their family issues as well as providing for their children.

Men’s business conference?

The first instruction i had from senior Warumungu/Alyawarra lawmen in the NT (1980) was “A man does not get around among women”. I was watched for a year or so to see how i shaped up.
Central Australian indigenous men’s domain is never to be confused with the domain of women and uninitiated men (indigenous or otherwise)  
Now, look at this keynote address at an “indigenous men’s conference” which holders of Basics Cards will not be able to afford, attend  let alone be properly heard and respected:

The 2015 National Indigenous Men’s Network Conference Agenda

Just who is empowered by the expensive conferences – which systematically exclude and disempower senior indigenous lawmen? 
Rampant ethnocide more like it.
