Our Initiatives

Collective impact initiatives bound by a shared goal

The work undertaken by the Hive and its partners is bound by a single goal: All children in 2770 start school well. Our initiatives have been designed and developed by engaging and building trust with the Mt Druitt community, and discovering what residents, families and community leaders need to nurture a thriving generation of children with diverse life opportunities.
