Miilan is a Not for Profit Organization or Charity that aims to improve the lives of Indigenous Australians and Torres Straits Islanders, to help them integrate fully into Australian Society, while maintaining, respecting and strengthening their long and rich heritage, cultures, customs and languages.
Help up not hand out model
Miilan is committed to improvements in housing, health, education, training, employment and business development. Instead of donating a house or a battery backed solar system, Miilan employs a “Rent to Own” model. This results in pride of ownership and leads to further integration into mainstream society. This model also enables the recycle of funds to stretch to other needy individuals and communities providing sustainable development.
The First Ray of a New Day
Miilan is a Wiradjuri word meaning “The first ray of a new day”. Miilan Org, through its endeavours, wishes to create that new day for Indigenous Australians and Torres Straits Islanders. A new day with new homes, new opportunities, new jobs, new business and new hope for an optimistic future.
