DHARMA CARE SEARCHES FOR NEW C.E.O.
Dharma Care is a Subud charity; all Members and Board members are Subud members and the values and mission of Dharma Care arise from our shared experience of the latihan. We are seeking a replacement CEO as it is time for the current CEO of eight years to move on to other things so, in the first instance, we are advertising this position within Subud.
Dharma Care is an Australian charity dedicated to creating generational change in regional communities in Australia and overseas. We do this by connecting people who care with people in need, collaborating widely, and providing the resources that allow the destitute and disadvantaged to pursue their full potential.
Dharma Care, is seeking a CEO to manage both its charitable activities in Australia and overseas, and its social enterprise, Sine Cera Rainforest Retreat. The latter is a 100-bed facility on 200 acres that provides the bulk of the revenue required to support Dharma Care’s charitable activities.
Dharma Care was established in 1981 and in the last eight years has undergone significant growth. During that time, it has raised nearly $900K in public and Subud-member donations to support its projects. Currently, it has a team of 12 part-time contractors. Dharma Care’s focus is on providing support to the most destitute in regional communities in Australia and overseas.
In Australia, its focus is on supplying material aid to those experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, homelessness in our region of northern New South Wales,
Overseas, it supports a range of Subud charitable projects including, Borneo International Football Association, Congo Maternity Hospital, and YUM’s Child Stunting Prevention Program.
Dharma Care also supports one non-Subud program, the Srey Lak Program for Girls, that was created in conjunction with Australian Subud couple, Livingston and Miyako Armytage, when they were working in Cambodia. The program funds accommodation, food, health care, and a first-class education for some of the country’s most destitute girls.
