Orange Sky Australia is committed to providing access to clean clothes, warm showers and genuine, non-judgemental conversation for all Australians. In remote communities, access to laundry services can be limited and cost prohibitive. To support this, Orange Sky works alongside remote communities to build impact through free laundry, local employment and local partnerships.
Our weekly impact in Yakanarra
Yakanarra is a Western Australia community on the edge of the St Georges Ranges, and is the location of Orange Sky’s tenth remote service!
Approximately 60 kilometres south-west of Fitzroy Crossing, Yakanarra is in stunning Country, surrounded by several sacred rock formations.
Since November 2022, Orange Sky has provided free laundry, genuine yarns and local employment to Yakanarra’s 150 residents. We acknowledge and thank the Traditional Custodians, the Walmajarri people and residents, for welcoming the service into their community. A huge thanks is owed to our local partner, Marra Worra Worra, who makes the service possible.
