With Guest Speaker:
Registrations are now open for our 2017 Gala Dinner being held on
Wednesday 6 December at The Refectory, Werribee Park.
Kot Monoah is our guest speaker for this event.
"War has been a humbling experience. At just 4 years of age my family was forced to flee our home. I lived in horrific conditions at Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya for 12 years. I arrived in Australia in 2004 and embrace the opportunities that Australia provides to its newcomers."
As Chairman of the South Sudanese Community Association of Victoria, Kot provides countless hours of advice, bringing together his knowledge as a lawyer to his community. Kot received the 2017 Law Institute of Victoria's Rising Star Award; the 2016 Victorian Multicultural Award for Excellence Certificate of Merit; and the 2016 African Media Australia Award for Excellence in Community Leadership.
With his own experience in a Kenyan refugee camp for 12 years, Kot has first-hand knowledge of what it means to receive support for education and the importance of perseverance. He now 'pays it forward' by helping provide eduation to young people in juvenile detention, using social media to educate young people about topical issues and the importance of education, employment and mentoring; and introducing work placements at his employer, Slater and Gordon, for Year 11 and 12 students.
