Return Home Funds

Waltja has some funds to help people get home to Central Desert communities. We can help with bus tickets, fuel and minor car repairs – this will only be available to help you get home straight away. Come in and talk to us if you need help. We would like to encourage everyone to get home to their country, be healthy and care for each other.

Doing Good Work with Families

Waltja is a community based organisation that works with families from Central Desert indigenous communities to address major issues affecting their communities. Waltja’s work focuses on addressing the many gaps in service delivery for children, youth, elders and people with disabilities in the remote communities of Central Australia.

The Waltja Way

Our board of directors are all indigenous women leaders from remote communities and they steer the organisation’s direction according to a set of indigenous principles they have named ‘The Waltja Way’.
