Taking action to make a difference
Greater Goulburn Valley

At Ganbina, we have shown beyond doubt it is possible to break
the cycle of unemployment and welfare dependency among
young Indigenous people.

Since our inception, we have placed over 450 young people
into long term, meaningful employment and that number
continues to grow each year.

Over the next decade, our local goals include:
  • To increase the pool of work-ready young Indigenous
    people in the Goulburn Valley by engaging with 350
    young people (six to 25 years old) each year by 2016.
  • To maintain positive employment outcomes for 100 Ganbina
    participants each year.
  • To ensure our participants continue to achieve 80 per cent
    success rate in their primary program activity.
  • To introduce new programs as required which meet the
    changing needs of young people and prospective employers.
Australia wide

Our unique approach and results have attracted widespread
interest from around Australia and overseas and as a result,
we plan to migrate our programs and key learnings to
other Indigenous communities.

By 2015, we aim to have the first self sufficient Ganbina
model up and running elsewhere.

We hope that this replicated model will be the first of
many and that as a result, Indigenous communities across
Australia will achieve social and economic equality with
other Australians.

It's a big job. But together, we know we can achieve it.
