Waltja Tjutangku Palyapayi Aboriginal Corporation (Waltja) is a community-based organisation, working with Aboriginal families in remote Central Australian Communities.
Waltja Tjutangku Palyapayi is Luritja language, meaning “families, for a big lot/everybody, really good together” and the organisation aims to be “doing good work with families”.
Waltja’s agenda is driven by a Board of Directors who are all Aboriginal women, with the aim of improving outcomes for families. Collectively women want to share their histories, stories and visions across the Central Desert communities to create one voice for the good of all.
The foundation for Waltja’s corporate philosophy is the leadership of strong Aboriginal women, a focus on families, and support for community self-management and self-determination and improved services on communities.
Since 1997, Waltja has survived and thrived as an independent non government organisation, first as an incorporated association and then as an Aboriginal Corporation, successfully generating income through competitive tenders with the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments, through philanthropic grants and through our own fundraising activities, including an art-based social enterprise Tjukurrpa Tjutangku.
Waltja’s service area is 900,000 square kilometres with an estimated population of 13,000.
Since it began Waltja has operated using a set of principles which are recognised by our members, remote community people and the organisations and agencies we work with. These principles and Waltja’s structure combine to give Waltja an overall approach which is unique.
