Careif was founded by Prof Kamaldeep Bhui and Dr Albert Persaud having earlier set a similar organisation with the University of Auckland in 2001.
Currently, nearly all staff give their time as volunteers. At present, we have three patrons, who are recognised internationally and nationally for their work and contribution to humanities, reconciliation, justice, sport and young people.
Our governance structure includes a board of trustees, a board of directors and a management team. We plan to expand additional contribution from people who may be patrons, international fellows, volunteers or advisors.
