Early literacy is vital because it not only supports children’s cognitive development but also their social-emotional development. Young children who have strong early literacy skills are better able to communicate their thoughts and feelings with others.
On the other hand, improving adult literacy is also important because it improves a person’s social, emotional, and mental health. It also provides an opportunity for a person to thrive in today’s modern world.
At DMSI International, we are happy that, thru the book drive that we organized in our workplace, we were able to contribute to the development of children’s emergent literacy for the kids at Children First Head Start and at the same time, provide free books at our workplace so that we can read at work during a break or at home.
Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without the help and contribution of the entire staff of DMSI International.
At DMSI International, we believe that donating used items is a great way to help others and the environment.
All year round, we set up a station in our workplace where employees can donate used items such as clothes, shoes, and accessories. These items are then sent to the Philippines care of DMSI Philippines.
Our goal is always to help people in need, especially the people in the far-flung areas that deserve our attention; we believe that donating used items is one of the great ways to do it.
By encouraging our employees to donate perfectly serviceable condition items, we’re contributing to a more sustainable economy by reducing landfill waste and creating less demand for new clothing, for example, thus reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions released.
Literacy means more than just the ability to read. It also means the ability to process and solve problems, making it a crucial skill set for anyone in today’s modern world.
DMSI International believes in ensuring that all employees have access to books they can read at work or home, and so we set up a space in our pantry room for the books donated by the entire DMSI team. Employees are encouraged to grab a book to take home and read.
We also believe that reading helps us grow as people and improve our social, emotional, and mental health. By fostering this culture of reading at DMSI International, we hope to empower our team members with tools for success in all aspects of their lives.
And that’s why the importance of improving adult literacy needs our attention — because it provides people the opportunity to thrive.
DMSI Philippines set up a distribution of school supplies for DMSI employees’ children last Saturday, August 20th for the upcoming school year. A simple appreciation and gratitude to the dedicated employees of DMSI Philippines for their diligence and hard work.
At DMSI we look for ways to give back to our communities, either in Sarasota or the Philippines. Yesterday, I was able to volunteer at the All-Faiths Foodbank in Sarasota to help pack boxes of food to be delivered throughout Sarasota County. I love helping, and I am so grateful that I work for a company that does the same.
