We strive to positively impact our communities. Our interaction builds an important source of social connection and a sense of belonging which is essential to enjoying a fulfilling life.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Having a positive impact in our society is something that we continuously strive to achieve. It is our responsibility to serve those around us and Jamaica through wide reaching initiatives.
In the same breath that we talk about Corporate Social Responsibility, we also should address why it is so important to both the health of Derrimon Trading Group and its team. Volunteering gives people a sense of purpose. The fulfilling feeling of giving back and contributing to society is unparalleled and the best way to know your community and its citizens.
Why are communities so important? Strong communities are critical because they’re often an important source of social connection and a sense of belonging. Participating in a community bonded by attitudes, values, and goals is an essential ingredient to enjoying a fulfilling life.
Derrimon Trading Group, through its retail arm Sampars, continues to collaborate with private sector organizations, government representatives, and individuals, impacting the vulnerable in our society. Donations of care packages with food and household items along with feeding the indigent and elderly are some of the many ways Derrimon is able to bring hope and comfort to those who need it the most.
We believe that an educated nation is a prosperous one. We continued our support for education by providing financial assistance to students in our surrounding communities. All levels of education are covered: tertiary, secondary, and primary. This is done primarily through our Self Reliance Youth Development program. The Self Reliance Youth Development program also hosts monthly group discussions with the parents of the students to explore and find solutions for common parental issues.
Providing opportunities for our nation’s youth is very important. Through the Derrimon Dreams internship program, we are able to contribute to the professional development of specially selected young graduates. Our internship program has seen candidates, who at the end of their tenure, were evaluated and received employment with our company.
We remain committed to being active participants in our society working with other stakeholders to achieve a better Jamaica.
