In 2017, DIO fully equipped the building of the center with blinds and window covers. Following this project, DIO moved to a long-term cooperation and is now regularly assisting First Step with stipends for the third year.

DIO’s stipend holder at First Step is a boy named Tsotne. The company covers the cost of his lessons and physical exercise on a monthly basis. As a result, the child is now able to independently perform simple routine activities. Representatives of First Step regularly update DIO on Tsotne’s progress in acquiring new skills.

Apart from First Step, DIO cooperates with the children’s hospice, Firefly World. The cooperation started in 2017 when DIO equipped the hospice with doors and windows as well as blinds and window covers. Since then, DIO has been actively participating in fairs organized by the hospice.

It is important for DIO to establish a long-term partnership with its beneficiaries as it believes that this is the only way towards sustainable development.
