The organisation is among the first development oriented independent initiatives to specifically work towards policy reforms, capacity building, awareness raising and attitude change through sustained communication and public relations strategies using the media, in general and audio-visual media in particular. DTM works mainly in Kenya and also undertakes assignments within the region and at the international level.

Dommie’s work targets development information for educational and entertainment purpose and is a four-time award-winning producer for several of her documentaries and infomercials.

These works will, in September 2013, be compiled and republished in Dommie’s website currently being developed and will include podcasts, videos, and a blog - as well as leveraging other social media platforms.
