CARAD receives $100,000 grant from Impact100!

CARAD is extremely excited to announce that we are the proud recipients of a $100,000 grant from Impact100!

Impact100 is a collaborative giving group who pool donations to make high impact grants.

CARAD's submission was based on the idea of taking our Eat. Share. Connect. lunch program beyond the CARAD office by putting it on wheels and starting a food truck! This social enterprise will enable CARAD to provide people from refugee and asylum seeker background the opportunity to gain work skills and work experience, raise awareness about CARAD’s work in the community, and break down social barriers by enabling people to connect over something positive we can all agree on – good food!

CARAD is incredibly grateful to Impact100 for their support, and would also like to congratulate Dress For Success, who also received a major grant, and all of the other inspirational organisations that participated.

We are looking forward to sharing more updates as we go forward with this project. What an exciting time to be part of the CARAD community!
