KARI has been recognised as the Winner for Outstanding Achievement (OAA) in The Australian Charity Awards 2017. Now in its fifth year, The Australian Charity Awards are a partner program of The Australian Business Awards and have been established to identify, recognise and reward organisations for the exceptional work undertaken through their charitable initiatives.
Paul Ralph, KARI CEO is proud to have been recognised for KARI’s contribution to ensuring the Aboriginal community has access to culturally-specific foster care services and access to quality, holistic services.
“Our commitment to providing high-quality, sustainable services and programs that benefit our community is unwavering,” Ralph said. “As a result, KARI has been recognised by many as one of the nation’s leading Aboriginal service providers.”
KARI has also been recognised as the ABA100 Winner in The Australian Business Awards 2017 for Community Contribution. Now in its twelfth year, The Australian Business Awards are an annual all-encompassing awards program which recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of comprehensive award categories.
The program seeks to engage with the world’s business, innovation and technology leaders through a global recognition and knowledge building initiative that is underpinned by the program’s established framework.
Paul Ralph says the award affirms their commitment to continuous improvement and innovative business processes.
“We seek to help our community flourish and believe in helping our families grow strong as we continue to do the best for our community,” Ralph said.
“We are committed to offering a range of programs and services to Aboriginal communities. Believing in long-term solutions, we run foster care, early intervention, community and cultural programs. These programs aim to help Aboriginal communities to become self-sufficient and flourish in generations to come,” Ralph continued.
Our holistic approach to foster care has a strong focus on cultural identity, support and overall well-being. To support this philosophy, we offer our children and young people access to various services.
“Today, companies are facing a competitive and continuously changing business landscape. In this context, the performance of companies depends more than ever on their flexibility, adaptability and responsiveness. New technological possibilities have the potential to transform the way companies operate within their respective industries with long-term gains in efficiency, productivity and customer loyalty,” Australian Business Awards Program Director, Ms Tara Johnston, said.
“The Australian Business Awards are proud to acknowledge the role of these leading corporate, government and non-government organisations for implementing innovative, well-managed high-performing business initiatives and for the research and development of their innovative products and services,” Ms Johnston added.
