indigo iNK magazine

In lieu of recent events in Afghanistan and in the interests of safeguarding our community partners, we have temporarily removed links to historical copies of our indigo iNK magazines and newsletters. We’ll put the full list back up shortly and in the meantime, please contact jemma.bailey@indigofoundation.org if you would like a copy from a particular year. Thank you so much

indigo foundation produces a biannual magazine, indigo iNK, with updates and stories from our projects, our achievements and challenges, a think piece looking at thorny issues in development and news from our team in Australia.

We also send out regular updates by email. To subscribe, visit here.

What’s inside?

  • An introduction to our newest partner in Kiribati, the Nanikaai Village Committee.
  • A spotlight on the Jirghai and Behsud Schools partnership. After a challenging year in Afghanistan, we are working with our partners to expand support for girls and young women to access education. Ali Reza Yunespour also shares a snapshot of his research into the new primary school text books and their potential and limitations in building community harmony and diversity.
  • Rebuilding after the Cyclone. On 4 April, Cyclone Seroja hit our three partners in Eastern Indonesia, with flash flooding and landslides damaging infrastructure and housing, including PEKKA NTT’s community centre and women’s cooperative gardens. Our partners are now rebuilding and reaching out to impacted community members.
  • Meet one of the 2020 scholarship recipients from the Women’s Empowerment Centre in Kabul. Her story reminds us of the power of education.
  • Updates from our partners in India on navigating the latest Covid outbreak and from our partners in Budaka, Uganda, who have been back in the classroom skilling up on governance and program management.
  • And much more, including an interview with our new board member Tamana Mirzada, a think piece by Sanushka Mudaliar questioning the ‘migration-development nexus’ and updates from our indigo community in Australia.

What’s inside?

  • A deep dive on COVID-19 and access to education in Afghanistan. With schools currently closed for face to face learning, Ali Reza Yunespour looks at some of the factors that threaten access and equity for students. Ali also shares our partners’ plans to build new school infrastructure across a network of six schools in the coming year.
  • Reflecting on our first year of partnership with the HAKO Women’s Collective in Bougainville. Meet HAKO librarian Marina and find out more about HAKO’s plans to expand their Safe House in response to increased demand from women facing family and sexual violence.
  • A piece explaining how we are working with and supporting our local partners as they navigate the impacts of COVID-19 and government restrictions on movement. During this time, we want to be transparent with you about what is guiding our decisions and how we are showing solidarity with our partners. To help us reflect on these times, we also share a think piece by Ann Porcino on the discomfort and possibilities of this moment and asking ‘how will we go forward’ in this decade.
  • A snapshot of a field visit to our Indian partners, Mahalir Sakthi, the Program for Education and Awareness Building and SASY by our Partnership Coordinator Susan Engel.
