Established in 2005, the Warlpiri Education and Training Trust (WETT) is an Aboriginal-controlled initiative to improve the education and training outcomes in four Yapa (Warlpiri-speaking) communities of the Tanami Desert.
The members of the WETT Advisory Committee monitor and develop programs and partnerships that promote bilingual and bicultural education and lifelong learning.
The Committee advises the Trust about investing its gold mining royalty income in training and education programs that support Yapa education priorities.
Its vision is for Yapa to be strong in their knowledge of culture, country and language, to be strong role models for future generations, and to stand up for our communities. They want their voices to be heard, and to have the same opportunities as everyone else. They want good roles and jobs, for their people today and for generations to come.
