"We were very pleased to partner with City Year and our sister company NTT Com
to once again give back to the local New York area community," said Denise
Messineo, head of Human Resources for Dimension Data Americas. "Our corporate
social responsibility (CSR) program, Heads, Hearts and Hands, spans the
breadth of our global business, involving 51 countries in five regions. This
day of service allowed us to help Harlem Grown, and provided employees in New
York City – our U.S. headquarters – with a fantastic opportunity to give
back."

Harlem Grown is an independent, non-profit organization that partners with the
New York City Parks Department and Department of Education and a variety of
food advocacy and community agriculture organizations. The main function of
Harlem Grown is to connect local public schools to the greater community
through the use of common garden spaces and mutually engaging activities.

Dimension Data's Heads, Hearts and Hands program enables the company to share
resources globally and work together with employees across three main areas:
social issues, environmental issues, and ethics and governance. As part of the
program, Dimension Data employees receive eight hours of paid time off
annually to give back to the charities of their choice. Every year, across the
Americas, the company's employees participate in hundreds of CSR initiatives
with organizations such as the MS Society, Habitat for Humanity, and the
Ronald McDonald House. Worldwide, Dimension Data participates in more than 500
initiatives every year.

NTT Com's CSR priority areas are contributing to society, protecting the
environment, respecting employees, and corporate governance. In the United
States, NTT Com maintains a strong dedication to societal contributions. As
part of its commitment to community beautification, for the second year in a
row, NTT Com joined Dimension Data for this day of service with City Year New
York.
