Description

MEEDAC (Midwest Employment and Economic Development Aboriginal Corporation) was incorporated in May 1997 by the community members of Mullewa to operate a CDEP (Community Development Education Program). The community elders were concerned that there was no meaningful employment and training opportunities for their people.

Due to the community demands within the region MEEDAC Inc. increased its CDEP and developed activities in Morawa, Yalgoo and Three Springs as well as remote communities such as Kardaloo, Barrel Wells, Mt Wittenoom, Nabawa and Pia Wadjarri.

MEEDAC’s first big CDEP project was Redland Roses which then expanded to include cutting flowers which were sold to retail outlets within the region. A new range of projects were set up there with a Horticulturalist to provide training to equip CDEP participants with a variety of new skills and build self-confidence in experiencing new things. MEEDAC Inc. expanded this project to include commercial production of vegetables and free range eggs in Mullewa. Both Mullewa and Morawa sell their fresh produce on a commercial basis as well as through the Perth markets.

This created the opportunity for CDEP participants to be a part of an on the job training, including learning the practices set out in our certification that is required in the industry. This exposes the participants to real employment expectations and procedures. MEEDAC Inc. also set up Redland building and maintenance which provided participants with skills and accredited training in the industry, with some people becoming qualified carpenters.

Since then MEEDAC Inc. has developed many different projects and activities, such as renovating and renting houses to the community members, Centrelink services to remote communities and Community Bus patrols in Mullewa, Laverton and Kalgoorlie.MEEDAC (Midwest Employment and Economic Development Aboriginal Corporation) was incorporated in May 1997 by the community members of Mullewa to operate a CDEP (Community Development Education Program).
