Youth, Sports and Community-Led Initiatives
ININTI SPORTS ASSOCIATION LTD
The Ininti Sports Association Ltd. was established in May 2018 to encourage and motivate, especially young, men and women to participate in sports and lead a healthy life-style.
The Association’s main goals and objectives are to look after the social an d physical well-being of its members; to provide education and training; to promote good health and nutrition and to improve mental health.
YOUTH AND CULTURAL ACTIVITIES
One of our main objectives is to ‘improve the lives of our members and their families and to create a better world for our children and their children’ as well as to ‘look after our cultural and natural heritage’.
Throughout the year we aim to organise, often working closely together with other community stakeholders, activities, events and trips for the young people in our community. The aim is to provide not only stimulating, educational and fun activities but also to teach our younger generation cultural and traditional knowledge and skills so they ‘learn to walk in two worlds’. This has included sporting events such as ‘Auskick’, bush tucker gathering trips, cultural camps and cultural skills lessons by Elders, an annual Christmas party and movie/disco nights.
MUTITJULU COMMUNITY LAUNDRY
One of our Community-led initiatives is the Community Laundry. The community-owned Laundry is situated in the heart of the community and features seven washing machines and seven dryers and provides community members access to free laundry services.
