Taking a new direction
Mavis Waina, a local from the remote community of Kalumburu, first started working with the Mission as an assistant in the setting up of the Kalumburu Museum. Being an artist herself, she thoroughly enjoyed explaining the artwork in the museum to the visitors. With the advent of the wet season, fewer tourists made it to Kalumburu, so Mavis took on a new direction, and was employed to work with Di Peters as her mentor, in the Mission Shop. Here Mavis learnt the ropes of being in the food industry, and embarked on the journey of food preparation, including salads, cooking stews, food handling, and cake making. With her successful completion of this training, and her pending certificate, Mavis has now advanced in her training to the area of Hospitality and Accommodation in preparation for the onslaught of the tourist season.
