Less than a decade later, the results are extraordinary. Today, there is a new generation of 1000+ Ganbina ‘Agents of Change,’ a generation which is educated, skilled, confident and proud of its heritage. This is the generation which will lead Indigenous people to achieve true social and economic equality with all Australians.
But we are just half way through our journey and we still have much to do. Our goal is simple: we want to double corporate and philanthropic investment in Ganbina so we can empower more Indigenous children to step up to a brighter future.
"“We are half way through our journey and we still have much to do.”
Children like Lena-Jean Charles-Loffell who joined the program when she was 14 years old and recently became the first Ganbina participant to obtain a Master’s Degree – her “dream come true”. Lena-Jean said knowing Ganbina was behind her when she was figuring out what she wanted to do meant a lot.
Another participant, Sam Muir, completed his Bachelor of Professional Communications and is now working in a communications department, as well as interning in a media team.
This is social revolution on the grandest scale. Change has well and truly arrived – and it is Ganbina.
