We work by partnering with trusted leaders in Africa who have
a dream to see their communities flourish.
We believe leaders know what their communities need – better than we do, living on the other side of the world. They live in the same conditions, they suffer the same illnesses, they rub shoulders daily with the children they serve. They know the cultural issues and deep-running beliefs of the community.
There’s always one thing that fuels every project, every decision, every plan that DIAS invests into. And it’s this: to give children an education, medical care and a future. Everything must work towards building up and nurturing children because they are often the most neglected, but also the most vital part, in altering a community. They are the next generation of leaders.
The DIAS way is all about going low and going slow. Long-term change might take time initially; DIAS has spent more than a decade fostering relationships with key leaders, mentoring them and hearing their dreams for their communities. It takes time but it leads to long-term, lasting change that alters generations. Our small DIAS team is made up of an engineer, an accountant, a financial advisor, a business consultant, an investment advisor and a doctor. Each one uses their professional skills to mentor and advise our local leaders. Our very hands-on, personal approach ensures there is accountability and transparency on the ground. DIAS operates with no overheads (all administrative costs are covered by the Directors), which means 100% of all donations go directly to the children in Africa.
DIAS is an ACNC-registered charity with tax deductibility status.
