Employment Opportunities

What started as a personal venture to clear a 20-year vacant plot used for illicit activity, quickly blossomed into a holistic plan for communal restoration. Today, DITO Inc. provides educational agriculture courses and organic produce to youth and families, from that once blighted plot. It also provides a weekly food bank coupled with wellness courses that has fed over 1000 families. Over the years DITO Inc. has built working partnerships with non-profits, universities, religious organizations, and political figures to ensure urban communities remain properly serviced
