As a way of living the ‘Show we Care’ Value, employees of DTC Botswana desire to actively play a meaningful role in the further development of the Botswana diamond industry by engaging in community social investment (CSI) projects.
In line with the DTC Botswana definition of CSI, employees see community investment as contribution in the form of money, employee time and other resources towards the improvement, upliftment and development of the lives of the communities we operate within and creating a legacy of sustainability.
The employee community investment programme will drive community project initiatives identified by staff members and will therefore consolidate all our efforts so that our contribution to the Botswana community is real, lasting and makes us proud.
DTC Botswana supports the employees’ ‘Show we Care’ initiatives and encourages the spirit of volunteerism amongst staff members. It further endorses the already existing good practice among staff members whereby employees identify a cause for which to raise funds and/or donate their personal time.
Below are some of the Employee Community Investment Initiatives
