The Puuya Foundation’s unique model, the Puuya Approach is an authentic partnership with the community, focusing on long-term leadership development and capacity building.

Puuya Foundation facilitates dedicated capacity building activities, and uses projects which are identified by the community as strategically important, to develop the skills, knowledge, confidence and experience necessary for the long-term advancement, development and sustainability of the community.


Not simply a service provision organisation, the Puuya Foundation also acts as a backbone organisation for the community, providing services and advice to government, nonprofit and research organisations looking to make positive connections which align with the goals the Lockhart River community has for itself.
