Mission

DGIM'S vision is a "cradle-to-the-grave" solution to the worldwide problem of abused, abandoned and at-risk children living in sewers, on the streets and working as sex workers. Many relief efforts concentrate on providing children with at least one nutritious meal per day and a bed to sleep in. Not enough attention is given to preparing them for the world outside those doors and once the children reach maturity, they are sent back into the world, unprepared to face life, and are thrust back into the same environment from which they came. Unfortunately, they are no longer young pathetic waifs one would feel sympathy for and helunprepared to find work or to support themselves. Therefore, they go back to prostitution, drugs, crime, and are exploited even more than their younger counterparts. The solution is not to "park" abandoned children somewhere until they are old enough to kick out, as most government-run children's homes seem to do around the world. The only viable solution is to begin the healing process by creating a loving, caring environment, in which the children can feel loved, protected and accepted as they begin their education. There are many small independent groups trying their best to do just that but without logistical, administrative and financial support they are doomed to fail. DGIM has a desire to partner with these independent groups and provide such support to them to help them bring their level of care to internationally accepted standards. To this end DGIM desires to instill a love of learning in the children, from kindergarten through high school, and help them reach their full potential. DGIM has established several educational alliances and also plans to implement new educational, vocational and medical technologies in its schools. As a result, the children will be able to develop into highly educated, skilled, self-reliant and motivated individuals. DGIM will identify and encourage individual strengths and help to overcome areas of weakness. A multidisciplinary approach to education focuses the child's strengths in one of four areas: college preparatory academics, technology, medical and health care services, or agricultural studies. Upon completion of their chosen field of study, the child enters a residency program and is employed at a DGIM facility for five years. This allows the graduate a safe place to hone their skills and also provides the children coming up through the system a chance to see how their peers have ?made it?, which will encourage them to succeed. Our goal is to educate every child under our care to at least a high school level. Our hope is to see them all finish college and enter the workplace. We truly believe that we are training the next academic, administrative, medical and political prospects in these countries.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Each facility will be located in a major population center on at least 100 acres of land. Each facility will also have a working agricultural farm on a minimum of 1,000 acres of land, to be used to teach the most modern and productive agriculture and animal husbandry techniques. Each facility will include:

1. At least a 400-bed residential complex with 100 condo style units at which 4-6 children will reside with house parents. These ?families? will stay together and as one child leaves another will be placed in the ?family?
2. An advanced education and technical complex.
3. A K-8th grade primary school.
4. A 9th through 12th grade middle school.
5. A medical clinic and emergency services facility.
6. A crisis center (located at the facility or off-site in a depressed area of the city).
7. A chapel and other supporting facilities.
8. A community center and recreation and leisure areas.
9. A water treatment facility to support the children?s home and the local community.
10. A power plant to provide energy to the children?s home and local community.

Services:
Each facility will provide numerous services:
1. Nutritious feeding programs.
2. Parental support services.
3. Immunization programs in cooperation with the World Health Organization.
4. Child protective services through the crisis centers.
5. Emotional and spiritual support services

DGIM will establish and implement policies and procedures, recruit and train staff, negotiate agreements with local, state and national authorities and screen children to be brought into the facility.

DGIM will first attempt to bring in children under age one from state institutions and those who have not yet "learned the street". Local community and church leaders and aid organizations will be asked to help to identify street children who can be helped.

Ultimately, under DGIM?S expanded vision, DGIM will identify needy elderly and handicapped individuals who will be brought into the expanded facilities. Interaction between them and the children will help both groups to acclimate and will create a bond that, we believe, will be beneficial to all.
