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.
Through DCI our aim is to enhance the physical, emotional, social and intellectual well-being of disadvantaged children who are in danger of dropping out of school or living in orphanage. With time and ongoing support, we intend to turn these tears of poverty into smiles, and to replace the sadness in their hearts with joy and optimism. Please join this effort. My sincerest gratitude to all our existing sponsors, donors, and supporters. Your continued support and generosity will give these very deserving children a priceless gift: hope for a better future. Thank you so much for choosing to make a difference in the life of a child. –Sabina Ahmed (Director Orphan Support Program) Chicago, IL
Our family’s 1st visit to Bangladesh and we were fortunate to meet with DCI’s organization development consultant, Salam and the DCI team in Bangladesh.

Thank you for your generous hospitality and great worth. –Mat Nelson, CA Rancho Palos Verdes, CA April 4, 2009
Our trip to Shoula has been very successful. Thanks to the effort by the DCI team and their friends here in this village. Shoula is a long way from home but our visit reinforces the similarities between children and families all over the world. We look forward to a long relationship with the children of Shoula and helping them develop to their fullest potential. Thanks again for the wonderful hospitality and look forward to seeing everyone again in the winter & introducing my family to our sun child sponsor children. –Matthew Nelson Los Angeles, CA
I went to Bangladesh in Jan, 2008. My favorite moment there was seeing all the kids from every window in the orphanage waving goodbye and telling us to come back soon. That was also the moment I promised myself I would return to Bangladesh just to visit them again. The last place we went was the slums. This was a very different experience. In many regards what I saw that day is what motivates me to work hard, whether at school or around the house. I often tell myself that soon the hard work I’m doing now will put me in a position to help improve the lives of people in Bangladesh. I know that all of us who witnessed the terrible living conditions in the slums share a desire to make a real difference. –Shantalle Alam Skokie, IL.
