So They Can’s impact acknowledged with DFAT accreditation

Last month, So They Can became one of just 58 international non-governmental organisations in Australia to be accredited by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

 

The accreditation, which ensures the Australian Government is funding professional, well-managed organisations that are capable of delivering quality development outcomes and are accountable to their stakeholders, is the result of a rigorous assessment process run by the Department.

 

Watch this short video of our Chair, Peter Hunt explaining what the DFAT accreditation means for our organisation:

 

 

We’re incredibly grateful to our teams for their tireless work towards delivering on our mission to provide quality education to vulnerable children in Kenya and Tanzania. This accreditation is testament to their commitment, innovation and resilience. We’re also grateful to our supporters and partners, without whom none of this would be possible.

 

“It was a defining moment to receive the recent news that the Australian Government, after rigorous due diligence, has deemed So They Can worthy of accreditation.  While our monitoring and evaluation, staff passion, level of annual income and dedicated team morale has always indicated a successful organisation, having the extremely experienced and thorough DFAT team accredit us as worthy of Australian Government investment is the icing on the cake. Thank you to everyone that worked so hard to achieve this result, it is a solid step towards achieving our sustainability and succession plan and I hope you share in the pride I feel for our organisation and everything we are achieving.
