Dharma Care Inc (DCI) is a small charity registered in NSW that aims to provide support to families, children and the elderly both locally and overseas.
Local Projects: Over recent years, DCI has worked with community members to develop a domestic and family violence service in the Tweed region. DCI is also the Australian provider of the International Child Development Program (ICDP). This program (established in 1985) is endorsed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and has co-operative status with UNICEF. It has representatives in 31 countries. The aim of ICDP is to enable children to reach their full potential by providing parents and caregivers with the knowledge and skills required to build and maintain safe, empathic, loving and trusting relationships with the children in their care.
Overseas Projects: In recent years, DCI has also funded projects focused on children and families in the Congo, Kalimantan, Nepal, Cambodia and Java.
