We would like to thank the Mumbulla Community Foundation for providing us with the funds to be able to implement this project. We are truly grateful for their patience with us and allowing us to continue with the project even though it was past its due date. We are extremely pleased with the end result of the resource we have developed and hope that the community can use it to learn some of the local Aboriginal language.
