Formerly the Nangala Project, the Moriarty Foundation was founded by John and Ros Moriarty in response to direct community requests from grandparents and parents to help them unlock their children’s potential. We have delivered two groundbreaking community programs in remote Australia since 2012: Indi Kindi, early learning for the under 5s and their families to improve the global readiness of Aboriginal children entering pre-school and school Indi Kindi includes a "Library without Walls" which delivers a best practice early literacy program to respond to the way very young children learn - turning pages, looking at pictures, counting, seeing repetition, using memory, and recognising familiar cultural themes to help break the cycle of Indigenous disadvantage. John Moriarty Football (JMF) is a world’s best practice football initiative for primary school aged Indigenous boys and girls. Founded by the first Indigenous Socceroo, John Moriarty, JMF’s goals are twofold: to provide the support, training, development and pathways for Indigenous football to succeed in Australia, and to use the sport as a powerful tool to change educational and life outcomes for Indigenous footballers and their families. An affiliate of leading Australian Aboriginal-owned strategy and design company, Balarinji, the Moriarty Foundation is a 100% Deductible Gift Recipient, Public Benevolent Institution. The Moriarty Foundation focuses and formalises Balarinji’s citizenship charter and not-for-profit activities, which have been central to the company’s business philosophy since its establishment in 1983.
