Acknowledgments and Partnerships

Our transformative Aboriginal Equine Assisted Learning Australia initiative would not be possible without the invaluable support of our esteemed sponsors. We extend our deepest gratitude to the charitable organisations whose commitment to empowering Aboriginal communities has made this program delivery possible.

Through our sponsors’ collective efforts, we can pave the way for positive change and empower Aboriginal youth and adults alike.

As guided by our equine partners, we are forging new paths and breaking barriers to build brighter outcomes and strength from within each individual.

Sponsorship Investment Utilisation

Our aim is to provide ongoing income to support the equine-assisted learning program, participant pathways to employment (post-graduating from the program) and work opportunities within a culturally relevant space for other Aboriginal communities and individuals in the Kimberley and wider.

More specifically:

  • Clearing, fencing and building a purpose-built facility for year-round delivery of our Equine Assisted Learning program, including stables, yards, meeting rooms and other spaces.
  • Future income generation includes teaching Aboriginal youth horsemanship and rodeo skills, horse sales, and building horse-related tourism to be led by our trained EAL people.
  • Community engagement with local people and groups to analyse and interpret data to determine the future direction of Yawardani Jan-ga to develop intercultural research processes in Yawardani Jan-ga implementation, adaption, and evaluation.
  • Training opportunities that encourage continuous learning throughout the project’s life, including the chance to achieve higher certification in EAL practice and research skill development.
  • Critically document procedures, activities, leadership, and staffing patterns that evolve throughout the project and evaluate the adaptation and implementation of the Yawardani Jan-ga program.
  • Build the capacity of Aboriginal researchers through formal university channels.
