Humanitarian Institute celebrates the success of the graduating class of the Sydney Summer Certificate in Humanitarian Foundations program.

Sydney, NSW (February 28, 2017) - Humanitarian Institute today announced the successful graduation of the second cohort of Sydney students in the Certificate in Humanitarian Foundations.

Humanitarian Institute's flagship program is committed to finding, training and mobilising talented individuals to work on the world's greatest challenges.

"It was a fantastic thought provoking course that I would encourage anyone, at any stage of life or career, to take if considering a career in the humanitarian sector" said Letitia Tunmore a Finance Manager with PWC.

The Certificate's participants have already started positively impacting world issues and receiving many accolades – Gennarosity Abroad is working with rural communities in Kenya to empower future generations through improved access to education and health services. Founder Genevieve Radnan said, "For anyone interested in the humanitarian or international development sectors, I highly recommend this course. It's practical, informative and straight to the point. It has, honestly, changed the direction of my future - which is really exciting!"

“Beyond identifying and training tomorrow's leading humanitarians with the passion to positively impact our future, core to our mission at Humanitarian Institute is empowering these leaders with the tools, knowledge and support needed to bring their ideas to fruition,” said Cory Steinhauer, CEO and Lead Trainer, Humanitarian Institute. “With the support of the humanitarian community around the world, we are committed to ensuring successful outcomes for our students in our flagship Certificate program.”

"This is essential and vital for understanding the complexities of the humanitarian sector and generating sustainable social change. Highly recommended... it changed the way I see the world" said Vincent Anthony, a recent University graduate from Sydney.

“We congratulate the Sydney Class of Summer 2017! I look forward to following their careers as they utilise Humanitarian Institute's subject matter, experts, tools and methods to create sustainable solutions" said Steinhauer.
