Our statement of belief
Credo (Latin for “I Believe”) is a statement of belief, commonly used for religious belief, such as the Apostles’ Creed. In some religions, especially those having no formal creed, a credo can be a statement of personal belief.
The Credo is more than just a moral compass. It’s a recipe for business, moral, ethical and spiritual success of the Kimberley Stolen Generation Aboriginal Corporation.
The values that guide our decision making are spelled out in our KSGAC Credo. Put simply, Our Credo challenges us to put the needs and well-being of the people we serve first, living and deceased.
QUESTION OF OUR EXISTENCE (Part 1)
All people and descendants of Stolen Generation is what this organisation bases its plight on and stands for.
