Yothu Yindi Foundation Indigenous Programs

The Yothu Yindi Foundation supports the advancement of Yolngu clan groups in northeast Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory. Our mission is for Yolngu and other Indigenous people to have the same level of well-being and life opportunities as non-Indigenous Australians. Established in 1990, YYF's board of directors are all local Yolngu community members. 

The Yothu Yindi Foundation is seeking your support for the following projects:

GARMA FESTIVAL - our flagship event held each year at Gulkula the ancient ceremonial grounds of the Gumatj. Garma Festival provides a contemporary environment for for the practice, preservation and maintenance of Yolngu knowledge systems and cultural traditions such as bunggul (dance), manikay (song), and miny'tji (ceremony). 

DHUPUMA  FOUNDATIONAL LEARNING PROGRAM - vocational education and training to assist children and young people who have become disengaged from educational settings. The program delivers a unique Yolngu cultural curriculum which recognises that a well-rounded education is essential to personal development and realising one's potential. In addition to basic literacy and numeracy, the Dhupuma program teaches important life skills along with tools to maintain emotional and social well-being. 

By providing pathways into further education and the development of job-specific skills, the Dhupuma Foundational Learning Program aims to provide participants with the opportunity of sustainable employment in the future.
