The Boab Network play during Halftime with Hawaiian

03 Feb 2020

In partnership with the Perth Wildcats, Hawaiian proudly hosted the Boab Network at the eleventh #HalftimeWithHawaiian home game of the 2019/2020 NBL Basketball Season! 🏀

This unique and memorable experience forms part of Hawaiian’s community giving program, which aims to create positive life experiences for people in the communities in and around our shopping centres and resort.

The Boab Network is a not-for-profit organisation which is 100 percent volunteer run. The Network was formed as the response to a suicide crisis in the small Kimberley community of Mowanjum in 2007. After consulting with the community, the Network decided to run school holiday programs for the young aboriginal people in the area.

On the 25 January RAC Arena welcomed 12 Mowanjum students, that attended the Boab Network 2020 Reward Camp. These 12 students were selected for their regular school attendance throughout 2019 and their civic responsibility displayed in their community. For most students this was their first time in the state’s capital.

The Boab Network operates on the value of relationships and two-way learning. They act as partners working with the Mowanjum aboriginal people to help them achieve their goals of economic independence and social sustainability.
