Before the ending of year 2018, CREST received a recognition from The Brand Laureate CSR Brandleadership Awards 2018. We were pleasantly surprised to receive the nomination letter and to this day we still wonder how we had achieved it. This award and the honor of receiving it goes to all our founders; current and former Executive Directors, Board of Directors, staffs, donors, supporters and volunteers who have contributed to CREST in the past 20 years. Without your support, hard work and contributions, CREST would not have gone this far.
