About

Nyirrunggulung-Rise, located in the Northern Territory of Australia , is a joint venture creating job opportunities, providing training and supporting social infrastructure.

The Jawoyn Association and RISE Ventures have joined forces to deliver the Community Development Programme (CDP) and boost employment and training in the central Arnhem region. This partnership’s strategy puts Indigenous people and communities at the heart of its operations.

The Federal Government funded program is aimed at increasing employment opportunities for Indigenous people on welfare.

This new partnership called Nyirrunggulung-Rise, which means working together, will deliver the program to communities of Beswick, Barunga and Manyallaluk, Binjari and Bulman.
