Mujaay Ganma Foundation Aboriginal Corporation
The Mujaay Ganma Foundation grew from the need to bring back cultural strength and trust to people and families who are dealing with cancer. We offer help to Aboriginal people and their families with culturally friendly, emotional, physical and spiritual support.
Ultimately, as we raise funds and grow as an organisation, we will support Aboriginal children to have a healthy lifestyle and provide services to the wider community.
IRCF FUNDED Projects
Yuraal Guunumba Ngurraay: Gumbaynggirr Native Foods Community Garden Project.
Supported with $38,443 to foster community engagement, organisational capacity and ultimately share cultural knowledge by engaging trainee coordinators and mentors to kickstart the Mujaay Ganma’s Yuraal Garden Project.

“The exciting aspect of this stage of our project is the culturally sensitive working environment we have been able to create for our two Gumbaynggirr Trainee Project Coordinators. They are learning from Elders, a custodial land management expert and horticulturalist, as well as a Project Manager.
Following this success they will be supporting other young people in an expanded workforce. The trainees have also acquired skills in promotion and event management, through organising a fundraiser which enabled us to engage a lot more community members. This funding has increased our capacity while being a catalyst for further organisational confidence and growth.”
