Dr Maithri Goonetilleke was awarded the Carey Medal in 2012 in recognition of his outstanding service and dedication to improving the lives of marginalised communities.

Graduating from Carey in 1997, Maithri established a not-for-profit organisation called Possible Dreams International who work with poor and marginalised communities in Eswatini. Maithri was instrumental in starting a program at Carey where university students from ethnic minorities worked with our students to address issues of racial prejudice, implicit bias, bullying and structural discrimination. Maithri is currently an Associate Professor of Global Health at Monash University and his positive impact on communities and the world is commendable and inspiring.

If you know of a member of the Carey community providing exceptional and outstanding service to the wider community nominate them today! Nominations close on Wednesday 31 May.
