Bindi Enterprises celebrated its 40th anniversary at a special community event in Alice Springs. Actor Aaron Pedersen, and his brother, Vinnie, a former supported worker at Bindi Enterprises, were guest speakers at the event.
Dale Wakefield, Member for Braitling and Minister for Territory Families, introduced the launch of Bindi – Valuing Difference, a beautifully written account of Bindi Enterprises’ journey from a small community-based group supporting three young people with disability into the unique organisation it is today.
Written by Joyce Bowden OAM, one of the founders of Bindi Enterprises, and Anne McNamara, the book celebrates the achievements of the people it supports and demonstrates what can be achieved when people with a shared vision work together to provide meaningful pathways for local people with disability.
MC, Andrew Harrison, one of Bindi’s popular supported employees, officiated the event and there was a special Bindi Bash performance by Bindi workers.
