Inspire, Empower, and Collaborate for Change
Creating a new story of connection for all Australians. The Gaimaragal Group has been established to lead social change by bringing people and communities together to find the unity in CommUNITY. We aim to facilitate the voice for our Elders in the contemporary social space, empower our youth to realise their full potential, and provide two-way cultural translation to bring individuals, communities and businesses together. We believe that the philosophies and teachings of Australia’s First Peoples, the way of life that has sustained us for tens of thousands of years, is worth sharing, and that in doing so, we can create a new story of connection and wellbeing for all Australians.
