Wirrpanda Foundation



The Wirrpanda Foundation was established to improve the quality of life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and reduce the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Aboriginal people.

The Foundation sets a strong focus on empowering and building capacity among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their communities, and promotes strong role models and healthy life choices. The primary aim of the organisation is to increase the retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in school, and improve their life choices after leaving school by encouraging further study or entry into the workforce.

The Foundation runs a variety of programs focusing on life skills such as healthy lifestyles, financial literacy, self-esteem and healthy relationships. Programs are primarily delivered in Western Australia, however the Foundation has also run programs in regional areas in Victoria and New South Wales.
