Ngalla Maya provides employment access to the Aboriginal people of Western Australia
My name is Mervyn Eades i am a proud Minang man of my Tribe of Noongar Peoples of the South West of WA. I established Ngalla Maya on the idea of creating Education Training and Employment opportunities for my Aboriginal Peoples upon release from the prison systems of WA.
Up until 13 years ago i was myself a prisoner within this system and i was fortunate enough to have broken that cycle of offending behavior and have not re-offended since. My incite into the system of prison is of personal experiences and i have recognized a Gap that needed to be addressed to help the prevention of my Aboriginal Peoples of the State of WA being incarcerated at the highest imprisonment rate in Australian.
Education Training and Employment are the main areas my peoples struggle in once released into the community after re-entry to the community and as we are all aware employment means getting monies and to have any chance of not re-offending ex-prisoners after being released need to provide for themselves and for ones families and that is where i came up with the idea to be that person to help provide these Employment opportunities for my Aboriginal Peoples of WA
