In the last year we built on several years of extensive work with many committed partners developing a sustainable business model, hosting pakana services.
This first year of trading has seen the business increase in independence with the development of its own Board and training. It is a not-for-profit social enterprise providing work and training for Aboriginal people in the natural resource management and agricultural sectors.
pakana services started trading in August 2013 with future plans to expand its offering and explore further opportunities to undertake natural resource management work. The business has grown to provide employment for 10 Aboriginal community members with on-the-job training and a development pathway leading to a Level II Conservation and Land Management qualification.
