DDI Launches Fundraising Campaign

The Diamond Development Initiative has launched its annual fundraising campaign to raise awareness about fair prices, safe working conditions, education, and human rights.

The Antwerp World Diamond Centre and the International Diamond Manufacturers Association have made the first contributions.

“Support from AWDC is very important to us, because this organization represents such a broad cross-section of the industry,” Dorothee Gizenga, DDI executive director, said in a statement. “One of the best ways the industry can show its commitment is through international trade associations like AWDC.”
