Njernda Aboriginal Corporation has faced many tough challenges over the past 36 years.

As with other Aboriginal community organisations whose members come from different traditional owners groups, there is external pressure of examination and scrutiny by the local broader community, media and funding agencies. Through dedication and support of Aboriginal people over the years, Njernda Aboriginal Corporation has survived all these challenges. Njernda acknowledges the struggles that have historically taken place by local people towards ensuring the physical, social, and economic needs of Aboriginal people living in Echuca and surrounding districts are met.

“We believe our kids need to learn the power of their cultural heritage within our Community from our respected elders. We believe that children who develop identity through their culture will be able to move in and out of the broader community and to achieve their aspirations without losing their cultural identity.”
