In 2015 The Walley and Coakley families established Kworp Marr, meaning “good hands” in the language of the Nyoongar people of the South West of Western Australia. Kworp Marr offers cultural workshops to Aboriginal youth in Western Australia.
Cultural Workshops for Aboriginal Youth Groups
Wescorp donate a percentage of profits from the Sandalwood Seed Oil sales to Kworp Marr. The donations fund educational and cultural workshops and programs for Aboriginal youth. The programs that are developed by Richard and Robyn enable Aboriginal youth to gain a better understanding of their cultural heritage. Kworp Marr believe this will enable their confidence and pride, and prepare them for future education and career challenges.
Kworp Marr funds workshops offered to Aboriginal youth participants in the Southwest Aboriginal Basketball Competition. The workshops engage students in cultural language, dance and music. These workshops are directly funded by the profits donated by Wescorp from the Sandalwood Seed Oil sales.
All BOOLAMARR products in the BOOLAMARR Personal Care Range use Sandalwood Seed Oil. You can support Kworp Marr and the workshops by purchasing any products from the BOOLAMARR Personal Care Range.
