Welcome to MADALAH

MADALAH Limited is a not-for-profit organisation that offers Secondary and Tertiary education scholarships for Indigenous students from remote and regional communities to West Australia’s leading boarding schools and Australian universities.

The organisation also manages Nyirrwa Murrgurlayi, Employment and Education Housing Broome. The WA Housing Authority established the Employment and Education Housing Program to address the need for supported accommodation targeting Aboriginal people from remote communities to undertake training and access employment opportunities in regional centres of Western Australia.

We believe education is the key to generational change and opportunity, and we are committed to making a difference in the lives of our participants, their families and communities. ‘Making A Difference And Looking Ahead’ is what our name stands for, and what we empower our students and participants to do.
