2017 Mata Mata Support Visit. A Message from Batumbil Burarrwanga: The time has come for us to gather at the sacred wäŋa (homelands) again. Last year was such a great pleasure to “walk the yolŋu road” with my sons, grandson, sisters and friends from all over Australia. My “team” of visitors allowed us to retrace the footsteps of my father and our journey so many years ago across the lands we sing and dance and guard. It meant a great deal to the entire community.

Help us send Gerry to the USA in the footsteps of Paddy Mills. I am seeking sponsorship/ funding to help cover costs required by my son Gerry Ansey (17 years old). 

A once in a lifetime chance to walk "the Yolngu road" through one of the most beautiful parts of North East Arnhem Land. This 60 km walk is by invitation only and requires the approval and consent of the traditional owners and residents of the area.

NUDJ supports the professional and personal development of Aboriginal plumbers. Water and sanitation are key health and safety issues for any community. Whether in cities, regional towns, remote areas or even in camping areas, plumbing makes a big contribution towards the quality of life for all people. There is high demand for Aboriginal plumbers across Australia. Having high quality water infrastructure and well maintained water supplies is one of the top issues that Australian communities face.

The Rumbalara Football/Netball Club Inc(RFNC) was founded in the early 1970’s and traces it’s history to the football teams coming out of the Yorta Yoart heartland of Cummergunja which fielded strong team from the late 1890’s to the mid 1940’s. Whist it had taken a new generation of Yorta Yorta peoples to be admitted into a mainstream sporting League in 1997, Rumba (as it is known) now bases itself in Shepparton’s Northern end at its Mercury Drive Sporting complex.

The Seven Generations Plan was developed under the auspices of Habitat Personnell and the South Coast Aboriginal Community Development Organisation It was meant to be a planning guide for current generations of children and the grand children of the future. It is useful as a discussion document and its owners are the Yuin/Ngunnawal people and the Aboriginal people that have come to the South Coast of NSW,  the inland areas including the Australian Capital Territory. 

Beringil is the traditional Yuin word for ceremonial feast, this project is about supporting and developing the Aboriginal food industry on Yuin country in the NSW South Coast.

Overview

TRYP (To Reach Your Potential) is the brain child of Col Watego, a proud Bundjalung and Torres Strait Island man with a distinguished 39 year career in the Australian military.

In disadvantaged communities there is sometimes a generational overhang in which young children at primary school do not have the guidance that is needed to help them when they encounter life problems. This then turns into a vicious circle that carries on into adolescence and adulthood. This project is about creating a way for young people to get back on track and to find a good pathway through life and learning. The shed will give young people  the opportunity to repair bicycles, skateboards and to learn about road safety.

Campaign Briggs This campaign aims to raise $100,000 in 2015/16 . This will be the foundation stone of an endowment to create creative space, recording studios and a base for Briggs creative and community work. The Trust will be a perpetual fund. Some interest will be re-invested into the Trust and some will go into supporting projects each year.
