Our people have the opportunity to work with Indigenous organisations on a project basis, in Cape York Peninsula, Shepparton in Victoria, Redfern/Waterloo in urban Sydney and Kununurra in the East Kimberly region in WA from 1 to 6 months. They apply their skills and knowledge to help build the capacity of Indigenous businesses and, ultimately, healthier and more sustainable communities.
Jawun is a non-profit organisation inspired by Noel Pearson that seeks to foster economic and social development, focusing on long-term, sustainable initiatives that will help break the cycle of welfare dependency in Indigenous communities.
