'Doing Good Work with Families'

My name is Anisha Gorey, I am 23 years old. I live at Papunya community which is 324 kms west of Alice Springs. I work for Regional Sports and Rec with the MacDonnell Regional Council, teaching the young people and taking them for bush trips and helping them to feel safe and helping them to go to school and helping them with applications for school. We also work with the police on the community.

I became a member by going out with Waltja workers on campouts for their meetings around the community. I have family connected to Waltja. I first heard about Waltja when Linda and Leela worked together and done the young Mothers camp out west of Papunya at Green Valley.
