Aboriginal people succeeding through ability, opportunity and reward for effort.
At Wunan, our goal is to create a social and economic culture which enables, encourages and rewards individuals and communities to take responsibility to change their lives. We work towards achieving this by empowering the Aboriginal people and families of the East Kimberley Region to ‘swim the river’ to reach the shores of opportunity.
Wunan’s efforts are spread out
across five strategic priorities.
Responsibility + Discipline = Power & Independence
Much like a growing seed draws essential nutrients from the soil in which it is planted, Wunan believes that it is of utmost importance to develop an environment that provides nourishment to allow individuals to develop responsibility and discipline in order to realise their power and true potential.
How you can helpHelp us create a positive future for Aboriginal people in the East Kimberley. Every donation makes a difference.
