The proceeds of the 2019 Diamonds Do Good Awards will benefit the Diamond Empowerment Fund’s mission of providing scholarships for youth from global diamond communities while continuing our consumer driven goal of communicating the ways diamonds do good!
D.E.F’s own ‘diamonds do good’ story is seen in the growth of young scholars from each of D.E.F.’s program recipients: The Botswana Top Achievers Program, The Graça Machel (Mandela) Trust, Veerayatan’s Colleges of Pharmacy, Engineering & Business Administration, Diamond Development Initiative, and three NEW beneficiaries this year, which are part of our new Diamond Empowerment Fund Scholarship Program
