Current Project: Bawoorrooga Community Self-Help Housing

Bawoorrooga is a small community situated approximately 100km east of Fitzroy Crossing in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Following a fire in early 2017, the main accommodation building was destroyed which had a detrimental effect on the health and well-being of community members.

The community has invited FISH to collaborate with them in the design and construction of a sustainable house that will form the keystone for future community development and enterprise opportunities. The community is showing initiative and hard-work as they build towards a future of sustainability and self-sufficiency.
