Welcome to the Kunga Stopping Violence Program

The Kunga Stopping Violence Project is a through-prison support organisation in Alice Springs for Aboriginal women. One of their services is a four week trauma-recovery workshop, for women getting ready to leave prison.

Heather had the honour of spending a few days with the Kunga women in H-Block at the Alice Springs Correctional Centre.

Here they introduce us to the program.
