The next stop for three Diamonds
International staff members is Africa.
Cayman Islands residents Tina
Anglin, Cynthia Bauld and Juliet Levene won a company-wide contest for
achieving top sales, teamwork and a positive company attitude, and will be
heading to Tanzania on a week-long trip.
Diamonds International, which has
more than 145 locations across the Caribbean, Mexico and Alaska, supports
social projects, education and health initiatives in Tanzania. It’s no surprise,
therefore, that much of the trip will be based on raising awareness and giving
back to the local community.
The three winners will arrive in
Tanzania on 17 October and will visit the Tanzanite One mining site to learn
more about ethical mining practices and participate in charitable initiatives
started by Tanzanite One and the Tanzanite Foundation. They will also visit the
Naisinyai Primary School to deliver supplies and educational materials to
students ranging in age from 5-11. They will also help out at the charitable
eye care mission, which provides eye care, treatment, medicine and spectacles
to those who otherwise do not have the means for such medical care.
“I am eager to see first-hand the
donations made by Diamonds International and the positive effect that it has on
the local community,” said Tanzanite International Manager Juliet Levene.
“It is truly rewarding to know that
I am part of a company that makes a difference in the lives of those in need.”
