K Farmer Dutjahn Foundation
The K Farmer Dutjahn Foundation (KFDF) is a not for-profit-foundation dedicated to the enhancement of the socio-economic progress of Central Desert Indigenous Australians via access to and resource sharing of sandalwood.
Strategies have been identified through Indigenous consultation to facilitate resource access and socio-economic outcomes.
The foundation will focus on supporting and uniting traditional native title holders who have sandalwood desert forests growing on land which they have (or are about to receive) exclusive legal possession of crown land, and can seek rights based on the landmark Martu ruling, giving them effective ownership over the sandalwood resource.
The foundation will also provide benevolent support to Central Desert Indigenous Australians through research and education into health issues and providing practical community support to fight health issues within this Indigenous population.
