Marlpa (Companion) Carer for our Women Elders
Our Marlpa Positions are open all the time. We aim to fit in with your availability.
Are you interested in coming out to Western Australia’s Great Sandy Desert to join us at the Kapululangu Aboriginal Women’s Law and Culture Centre as a Volunteer to help care for the Women Elders here?
Kapululangu is Australia’s only Aboriginal Women’s Law and Culture Centre, one of Australia’s most remote Women’s Centre (and Aboriginal too boot), and a core provider of Women’s Law (ceremonial) and Culture (custom) activities and events for both Indigenous and Non-Indigenous women from across the Kimberley, throughout Australia, and around the world.
The Volunteer position involves caring, cooking, cleaning, driving and some providing logistical support for culture work (eg. trips to Country) for five (5) amazing Women Elders, and sometimes their families and community.
We are looking for resourceful, self-motivated and initiative-taking women who are prepared to do what it takes to ensure that our remarkable Women Elders are properly cared for. You don't necessarily have to be skilled in any way other than in life skills. The minimum length of a Volunteer stay is 1 month - but there are options to extend for the right person. The hours are long and hard, but (based on the experience of every other volunteer) it’s fun and you’ll fall in love with the Elders and not want to ever leave them.
In exchange you get to live with and learn from some of Australia's most magnificent Aboriginal Women Elders. These Elders grew up in the desert before the Kartiya (Strangers) arrived in their ancestral homelands - an event that changed their world forever – all within their lifetimes. These Nintipuka Tutju (Clever Women Teachers) and Tjarrtjurra (Women Healers) are Custodians of the Old Ways (Kururralkatjanu). Simply being with them is an opportunity of a lifetime.
We at Kapululangu are always open for the right woman who can make a difference to the lives of our Elders and our kids. And you’ll get to make life-time friends with the other volunteers too.
If this opportunity sounds just right for you, or if you are at all interested, then please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Kapululangu Women Elders are waiting to welcome the right women into their lives. So if you think this describes you and you are keen to make a real difference then please contact us and we'll send you more information.
