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’.
