The Watarrka Foundation is a non-profit organisation founded and supported by Reg Ramsden and his company Remote Educational Tours, a company that specailises in education group charters to the outback. His company enables interstate city children to volunteer for community support projects during their Central Australia trips, and break down past prejudices by working together with locals and appreciating the differences and challenges of remote indigenous communities.
“It is through city kids meeting local aboriginal kids and working together on their lands that we can start
giving back, bridge the gap and give the Aboriginal kids of today a better future”.
We aim to develop leadership values amongst the children, so as to create the leaders of tomorrow, who are inspired to care for their legacy and that can show others the way.
We undertake a number of initiatives to assist the children, their teachers and their parents within their own milieu, such as school nutrition schemes, outstation upliftment and creating education opportunities.
