RAPAPORT... The Julius Klein Group (JKG) has become a sustaining supporter of the Diamond Development Initiative (DDI). 

“The Julius Klein Group seeks to be a good corporate citizen throughout all aspects of our global operations and activities,” said Moshe Klein of JKG. “And that doesn’t mean at one end of the diamond pipeline alone. DDI International understands that artisanal diamond miners are part of the wider community in which the industry does business, and so do we. We are happy to add our name to the list of DDI supporters.”

DDI addresses much needed economic support and sustainability projects for Africa’s artisanal and small-scale diamond miners. Stephane Fischler, a DDI board member, noted that JKG became the first Diamond Trading Company sightholder to sign on to the campaign.

“We are a new organization, but we’re already seeing important results on the ground,” said DDI’s executive director, Dorothée Gizenga. “And a long-term relationship with the Julius Klein Group is very important to us. JKG, a Diamond Trading Company sightholder with numerous factories in southern Africa, has clearly demonstrated leadership throughout the years by supporting (via programs and monetarily) the people and countries in which it does business.”
