OUR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

The on-going development of our company is influenced, in no small way, by our desire to give back to society in order to ensure the sustainability of our business.

We are committed to creating more employment opportunities, developing good working relationships with our employees and other stakeholders, honouring our tax and other civic obligations as we continue to provide quality, affordable and accessible products and services.

Our social responsibility activities include, but are not limited to the following

  • Regular contributions (cash donation, etc) to the Ghana Optometric Association (GOA). – The Ghana Optometric Association was established to oversee and regulate the practice of Optometry and other related activities in Ghana. The passage of the Optometry Bill (which is currently before Parliament) will empower the Association to streamline the activities of practitioners and allied professionals.
  • Regular contributions (cash donation, etc) to the Glaucoma Association of Ghana (GAG) – The Glaucoma Association of Ghana continues to educate the general public about the prevalence and management of this eye disease through lectures, seminars and publications in the dailies. It is estimated that 20% of all Ghanaians over the age of 35 years have Glaucoma. (Daily Graphic, Wednesday, August 8, 2007, Page 3)
  • Regular contributions (cash donation, etc) to Challenging Heights (an NGO) – Challenging Heights has been working very hard over the years to help in the education of children from deprived communities. The many lives that have been changed attests to the impact this NGO has made in the lives of these children. We, at DELCIELO, believe that children are the future and are therefore pleased to be associated with this noble cause.
  • Regular contributions (cash donation) and free optical services for Extra Mile West Africa (an NGO). – Extra Mile West Africa is another NGO working very hard in the area of education and welfare of children from deprived communities. Our association with this NGO over the years and our continuous support for their expatriate staff has been a rewarding experience.
  • Subsidized eye-care services for senior citizens, schools, NGOs, etc
  • Practical Training Center for Optical Technician Training Institute (OTTI) Oyoko – Ashanti
