Many DT Group projects operate in remote and rural locations. Those living there often face challenging economic conditions. They may lack basic services.
As a company, we pursue policies that bring both social and economic benefits. We recruit locally and engage positively with local communities. We pursue initiatives that promote social inclusion, social entrepreneurship and self-reliance.
The DT Foundation was formed in 2010 as the philanthropic arm of the DT Group. With Angola as its geographic focus, it collaborates with expert partners on social development projects in areas where DT Group member companies are active.
