Breathe for Aboriginal Housing Victoria
Umarkoo Wayi – Gangu Gulin Country
We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the Traditional Custodians of the land upon which Umarkoo Wayi – Ganbu Guljin stands. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.
Paying the rent is a requirement of every nightingale housing project. Nightingale housing have instigated a simple pay-the-rent system, it is only a small percentage of the owners corporation fees per year (we know it’s not enough, but it sends a clear message).
This revenue is donated to First Nations organisations under the direction of First Nations Elders to the Nightingale Housing Board.
The hope is that others choose to do this in the future. and that the money goes to, in some small way, start tackling some of the issues of inequality faced by First Nations people.
