Newcrest Mining and Ngurra Kujungka
The Western Desert program is delivered through a partnership with Newcrest Mining. Now in its sixth year it has helped develop Ngurra Kujungka Inc (formerly
Western Desert Sports Council) work with remote schools to run sports
carnivals and other activities in Aboriginal communities. Elders,
parents, children and other service providers are now intimately
involved in the program.
The program partners with State Sporting Associations (SSAs)
to encourage Aboriginal people to try new sports and join local clubs
and associations. This creates stronger community connections and
enables talented participants to be identified and supported to
participate at high performing levels.
