As one of our guiding values is the respect and support of local culture it is our focus to employ local Aboriginal people to support our programs across the East, Central and West Kimberley regions. Read more about careers at Garnduwa here.

Garnduwa employs 28 people in the region with over 80% Indigenous employment. As we support remote community initiatives, we also rely on volunteers across the Kimberley to deliver sporting events. This last year, Garnduwa officially engaged nearly 200 volunteers in community activities. Read more about volunteering at Garnduwa here.

We also collaborate with the Community Development Programme provider/s in remote regions to ensure that the activities that Garnduwa undertake as part of our project delivery is contributing to the maximum extent possible to increased Indigenous employment, business and economic development.

Last year four work-experience students were hosted by Garnduwa in the reporting period. The students accompanied local Kimberley Active Community Coordinators on remote visits to deliver junior sporting programs in remote schools and gained experience in administrative and other work-related tasks.
