Current projects

Building stronger communities
We seek out opportunities while working in an intelligence model. It’s about alignment, strategic placement and relationships. We have two pillars at AIG: operational and charity and two are aligned because the operational business derives income for the charitable distribution.

Remote Laundries project

The BIG VISION of the AIG Remote Laundries is that all people living in remote communities in the NT will be able to wash their clothes, bedding and towels. To find out more visit our Remote Laundries website at www.remotelaundries.org.au

The first step is to work in consultation with Aboriginal Corporations to build laundromats in seven sites in the Top End of the NT. Barunga (south east of Katherine) is the site of our first Remote Laundry and we are busy planning for number two.

Benefits of laundromats are enjoyed throughout the world and we believe they should be enjoyed in remote communities in the NT too.
