Rigor. (from the lat. rigore) n. 1. harshness; strength; 2.fig., severity; punctuality; accuracy.

The rigour is reflected in our procedures, in time and in the rules to follow. In the light of moral and principles, being severe means being rigorous.

Solidarity. (from the lat. solidare) n. 1. the quality of being solidary; 2. reciprocal responsibility among the members of a group, namely social, professional, etc.; 3. sense of sharing another’s suffering.

Courage. (from the lat. coraticum) n. 1. bravery facing danger; intrepidity; to have audacity; 2. moral force before a suffering or setback; 3. [fig.] to input energy when performing a difficult task; perseverance...

Courage is essential in our life. Courage to face less pleasant situations when complex issues come up, not expecting random resolutions.
It is a value that we must highlight as opposed to the fearful, cowardly and laziness.
The courage to react to criticism not with an attitude of demotivation or sadness, but rather to search for the means and the action to overcome its own reason. This kind of courage, which is also an intellectual courage, is highly recommended.

Responsibility. (from the lat respondere) n. the trait of being answerable to someone for something or being responsible for one's conduct; a form of trustworthiness.

We must be certain that, before a choice, we chose what is best for both of us and not just the best for each one. Each employee is responsible for his negotiated activity and co-responsible if the co-worker does not fulfil his own task, thus preventing the common goal. A team is a set of individuals - is a whole. In the business game, as in social or family contexts, everyone must comply with their own relative position and we shall not permit that one of ours fails to be in our team.

dst offers 50 computers and an internet connection to deprived students

Antena Minho

In an initiative that directly supports the Sá de Miranda School Group in implementing distance learning, dstgroup offered 50 new computers and an internet connection.

In response to the appeal launched by the Sá de Miranda School Group, dstgroup offered 50 new portable computers to deprived students, also ensuring them internet access for a period of four months.

The Sá de Miranda School Group has many students belonging to low-income families. With the start of distance learning, it was found that most school tasks were not being done due to the lack of computer equipment and, therefore, the School Group Management contacted partners and local entities in order to ask for support to minimize the problem.

Upon realizing “the impact on learning”, the dstgroup answered immediately to the request, offering 50 new portable computers to students identified by teachers and class head teachers.

The business group led by José Teixeira also provided the installation of optical fibre for internet access for those who did not have access and provided some ‘hotspots’ for possible additional needs.

The internet service is entirely free for the next four months and all expenses are directly charged to dstgroup.

The delivery of computer equipment took place last week in the Sá de Miranda School auditorium, in a phased manner, to safeguard the security measures and social distancing rules.

In the presence of the School Group responsible and the representatives of the business group, the computer equipment was given to students and their parents who “praised the initiative”.

Quoted in a press release, José Teixeira, dstgroup CEO, stresses that this support represents, in times of pandemic, “one more testimony of the role that companies and, in general, civil society, should play to be part of the solution in solving the problems that appear in crises of this dimension”.

“It is our opinion that the Municipalities governments and the Government have a duty to the citizens, but it is equally true that, alongside many who have nothing and give their personal effort, the economy and the companies that can do it, must help and be supportive”, says the businessman.

“They can remember the high school or university they attended and to whom they owe a lot, and to that extent it is now their turn to give back a small part of what they do not need, thus helping those who are in need. (...) The time has come to repay, using stock capitals, whoever has them - and many do - both the companies and the shareholders, and make them available so as not to sacrifice the State that has to withhold resources to pay for lay-offs that could be otherwise avoided”, defends the CEO.

José Teixeira ends with an appeal to education and culture: “When companies don't have work to do, they can use downtime to offer their workers distance training. There is always the possibility of carrying out additional training, which will certainly increase the companies’ competitiveness. This attitude of those who can, and many can, would contribute to 'relieving' the weight of the Central State, which would thus have more resources to assist education, culture, health and the economy of the most fragile ones”.

This help from the dstgroup in times of pandemic is one more example of the many other proofs of the importance the company has given throughout the years to the work carried out in schools, namely in the Sá de Miranda School Group, supporting different initiatives developed, from which the sponsorship of the magazine 'Trajetórias' stands out.
