HEALTH & WELL-BEING:
As Benjamin Franklin once said: ‘’Do well by doing good’’
This is something that resonates deeply with the DMC Network. We have been in business for over 40 years and we want to recognize our success by doing good. As DMC's, we make a living out of the destinations that we operate in, and we feel a strong moral obligation to give back to those communities that may not be as fortunate.
The DMC Network has decided to focus on two areas that we feel are of huge importance to our community. The first is ECPAT (End Child Prostitution and Trafficking) – the DMC Network are committing to join this organization in 2019 and supporting the research, education, training and support services that this organization offers. The second cause is Water.org to which the DMC Network has committed to partner with as our other chosen charity and pledging a percentage of our profits to this organisation.
The DMC Network is committed to combating human trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children. As a socially responsible company, the DMC Network stands firm in our resolve to create awareness of these crimes by utilizing our professional resources, and ask our business partners to do the same.
The DMC Network has become a member of ECPAT and joined the Code (short for The Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism). This is a multi-stakeholder initiative with the mission to provide awareness, tools and support to the tourism industry to prevent the sexual exploitation of children.

Water.org is an organization with a mission to empower people with access to safe water and sanitation through affordable financing.
Water.org believe that access to safe water can protect and save lives, and is a key way to break a cycle of poverty and help make a brighter future for so many people on this earth. To date, they have supported over 21 million people through their efforts.
We are delighted to commit to donating to this worthwhile charity, one that is truly changing lives across the world.
This is our small way of making a difference in the world – a world in which our industry so clearly benefits from, and to which we must continue to look after.
