ENTERPRISE LEARNING PROJECTS (ELP)
Enterprise Learning Projects (ELP) is an Indigenous controlled, not-for-profit organisation based in the Northern Territory. ELP supports remote Indigenous entrepreneurs to develop and grow their businesses, on their own terms and on their own Country. You can learn more about ELP at www.elp.org.au
In 2013, ELP was invited to Minyerri to discuss enterprise opportunities and, after sharing a cup of Gulbarn with Samara, a business was born. The rest, as they say, is history.
