AT KENNERLYS WE ARE COMMITTED TO THE COMMUNITY HERE IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA
AND ALL AROUND THE WORLD!
Throughout the month of September, the Kennerlys team took part in the Steptember challenge to walk 10,000 steps a day for 28 days to support people living with cerebal palsy. Encouraging a bit of healthy office competition the staff split into two teams, the Accountants versus the Admin, and by the end of Steptember the Kennerlys team had walked a combined 2,782,532 steps!
Kennerlys is passionate about supporting the Case For Change program via Awareness Cambodia, and help empower children to realise their dreams. Kennerlys recently supported the purchase of 100 backpacks, school supplies and hygiene packs for rural children in the Province of Kompong Speu in Cambodia.
The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. We have one goal: to stop men dying too young. Lejo continues to proudly support the Movember Foundation each November.
In 2008/2009 Lejo Ouwendyk, Managing Director of Kennerlys heard about the plight of countless Kenyan orphans via the media and actively researched organisations and projects that he and his team could get involved with, and help. Lejo discovered Hero’s of the Nation, and was immediately inspired to help answer the plight of orphans in Nyahururu, Kenya. The orphanage is the largest in Kenya, and currently houses and educates over 500 children.
