INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES SUPPORT
GANDEN’s is proud that we have provided drinking water, sanitation and environmental improvements to many indigenous communities throughout Australia through supporting local and state government and local businesses within each community.
Some of the communities we have worked with include Palm Island, Doomadgee, Torres Strait Islands, Torres Shire, Wujaj Wujal, Mornington Island, Cherbourg, Nhulunbuy, Pormpuraaw, Yulara, Woorabinda, Napranam and Yarrabah.
“WaterAid is an international not-for-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation. Only by tackling these three essentials in ways that last can people change their lives for good.” WaterAid Australia Website
WaterAid Australia is a wonderful organisation and GANDEN is delighted to be a Gold Sponsor at the 2021 Queensland WaterAid Gala Ball.
VINNIES CEO SLEEPOUT
Living on the Gold Coast should be paradise, but for many Queenslanders it’s the opposite. The economic downturn over the last 12 months has seen many people – including young children – sleeping rough for the first time ever. Women over the age of 50 are the fastest growing victims of homelessness, nearly always through no fault of their own.
GANDEN’s Managing Director, Darron Nutt, will be participating in the Vinnies Gold Coast CEO Sleepout on June 17 and aims to raise at least $3,000. Proceeds from the event will go directly to providing accommodation to Gold Coast locals who find themselves homeless. Donations can be made here and are much appreciated.
GANDEN has a policy to promote supplier diversity, providing equal opportunity to provide goods and services from companies who assist those in greater need of support.
For example, GANDEN has, for many years, procured spinal injury insurance for all its employees and their immediate family members though “Not-for-Profit” organisation PBF.
PBF provides support to those with permanent spinal injuries and promotes spinal injury prevention awareness.
Eligible GANDEN employees are encouraged to regularly donate whole blood, plasma or platelets at the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. GANDEN allows staff to donate during work hours without having to take leave.
From the Moorooka AFL Masters Over 45’s to the Gold Coast Suns, GANDEN is proud to give back to local sport.
