Walama Muru is a volunteer run program partnered with UNSW student organisation Arc, that aims at connecting both indigenous and non-indigenous students, communties and cultures through the development of respect and understanding.

Each year volunteers travel to regional Indigenous communities to build on closer cultural ties whilst providing opportunites to develop skills in leadership, management, organisation, cross-cultural communications and raising awareness around Indigenous issues both within UNSW and surrounding communities.

Walama Muru has an amazing and life altering effect on both the Indigenous community and also the volunteers involved. From working alongside other Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, volunteers are connecting with Indigenous cultures and issues to deliver an overarching contribution to reconciliation in our country.

How you can help.
