85% of our total operating expenses fund programs for children. So the majority of your dollars go toward exactly what you intended - supporting children in poverty.
It was a pleasure meeting the entire DCI team this afternoon. I am excited to see that under the Bangladesh team’s leadership the process of all the programs are moving forward positively. The orphanage program presentation was very promising. I wish the entire DCI future success, I hope to see you all soon. –Masud Chowdhury, TX June 26, 2009
We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work with DCI in building the best of breed, transparent and stable system for helping underprivileged children and their families. With Allah’s help and with active participation of all of you wonderful people, we hope to achieve that goal soon. Please get involved and sponsor a child today. Together, Allah willing, we can make a difference. –Adil Faisal minipack College Park, MD
Without DCI, I cannot imagine how I could possibly have seen and learned so much as an undergraduate about medicine, other cultures, and my own desire and ability to make a difference in others’ lives. Working with this wonderful organization has really changed my life and made me feel good about who I am and at the same time helped me realize the enormous capacity I have to help others. –Nabil Anwar DCI Volunteer in Bangladesh Chicago, IL
I had no clue while traveling with the DCI team in Bangladesh that I was about to go through a life-changing experience. We were greeted by adorable young children that live in unimaginable conditions. But that did not keep them from smiling or greeting us happily. Spending time with them made me appreciate my family and the material comforts that many of us here in the United States take for granted. I plan to return to Bangladesh and do more volunteer work for these children as soon as I can because this trip opened my eyes to a whole other side of life and really changed my perspective on things. –Nahreen Ahmed Drexel University, PA
Seeing the extent of the poverty in Bangladesh over the years, particularly among children, has been painful. But on my most recent trip there things were different. For the first time I saw the flame of hope and happiness in the bright faces of the many children DCI has helped. Having the opportunity to work in such a caring environment where children receive access to health care and education makes one feel that there is hope for the future of the world. –Maliha Ahmed DCI Youth Volunteer, PA
