  • > Our Impact

    Our Promise

    One of the most compelling aspects of the DGCI Responsibility Program is its expansive scope.

    We view our commitment to our clients and colleagues as a promise to ensure our ethical, transparent, and fiscally-responsible standards.

    Our Framework

    In order to maintain a holistic approach to personal growth and development, we utilize a four-part framework. We implement this framework to organize all of our activities in order to address the needs of all individuals across different stages in life.

    Engagement

    Ensuring that the needs and necessities of future generations are met

    Education

    Cultivating people across the globe through knowledge and training

    Employment

    Continuously providing international opportunities in different fields through specialized training

    Empowerment

    Promoting leadership to encourage self-growth, guiding future generations

    We Care

    We make a true difference in the lives of our employees; our business partners and professional colleagues; and those that we serve through our charitable endeavors.

    The secret of DGCI’s success in this regard is the care with which we select, plan, and execute our programs. While no one can predict with total accuracy the exact impact of an initiative, we:

    • Build carefully on the results of prior, proven activities
    • Assess each program in light of the company’s overall strategies
    • Ensure that all initiatives are completely congruent with the company’s mission, vision, and values
    • Establish realistic timelines and milestones
    • Enlist the services of an internal “champion” to steer each major activity
    • Create and carefully monitor program metrics to evaluate the success of each activity

    Our Support

    DGCI believes that its business operations must always consider the aspects of community support, involvement, and upliftment. In the United States, our involvement with AUSA and the Memorial Day Flowers program help support veterans and their families in a variety of ways. This includes re-training efforts and ongoing commemorations of those who sacrificed their lives in service to our country.

    On a global scale, we contribute to the well-being of communities by locally sourcing materials whenever possible. We also offer secure, well-paid employment and job-related training to local individuals. This enables them to care for their families while making improvements to their community infrastructure.

    Our Impact

    To organize and execute certain charitable programs, DGCI turns to the services of its sister organization, the Zamani Foundation.

    The Zamani Foundation (www.thezamanifoundation.org) offers education, opportunity, and hope to the disadvantaged around the world – and an opportunity for people everywhere to become engaged in charitable endeavors that speak to their personal concerns and passions.

    Most of the Foundation’s activities are directed at the first charitable pillar of Engagement (food, water, shelter, and clothing).

    Passion is our mission. Change is our destiny. Together, we’ll make a better world.
