We Are Proud To Announce The $100,000 Major Grant Recipient!
On November 2nd over 160 donors and community members gathered for the Impact100 Fremantle Voting and Awards Night.
Four worthy finalists each had time to pitch to the donor group on why they deserved the $100,000 grant.
We’re thrilled to announce Ngalla Maya – Aboriginal Employment Access were the major grant recipient of $100,000!
And because of the generosity of our donor group the other three finalists, Fremantle PCYC, MyKy and Koora Wadi Supported Playgroup, each received $5,000.
An additional donation was made by the Smith and Jones Fund (held by the Fremantle Foundation) to the Fremantle PCYC.
Ngalla Maya is a not-for-profit organisation taking a holistic approach to closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. First Nations people make up 3% of the Australian population but represent 43% of the prison population in Western Australia.
Ngalla Maya addresses core social problems that lead to disparity and works to inspire and commit former inmates to training and education opportunities that lead to employment. They support each candidate in their journey into training, employment, ongoing mentoring and support; all of this occurs while also supporting the family unit. Ngalla Maya also works with First Nations Homelessness Project supporting First Nations families who are at risk of eviction from their homes.
