Sports equipment needed for Wadeye youth
You can help improve the lives of indigenous youth in the Wadeye community, by providing them with sporting equipment to help keep children engaged and excited.
20 pairs of football boots (all sizes from ages 12 – 30), 20 footballs, 20 basketballs, 5 bicycles and 10 bike helemts are all needed by a youth centre in this community.
This youth centre aims to improve the lives of Indigenous people of the Thamarrur region in the Northern Territory through identifying and developing its future leaders. In Wadeye, they design programs that are locally lead as a way to develop the skills, provide support and recreational activities to the youth of Wadeye.
Your kind donations will go a long way towards supporting these programs, and helping the wonderful kids of this community.
We are proud to run our Youth Service for the young people of Wadeye. We run programs each day and try to support our youth as much as possible, as well as other service providers. Our programs include everything from men’s and women’s health classes to cooking and culture.
This is Thamarrurr Youth Centre and Rec Hall. Soil and grass seeds have just been laid, so local are pretty pumped about having some lawn out the front enclosed in the new fence.
This is the main street which is just behind the Thamarrurr Youth Centre.
