Yesterday February 8, 2016 ethnic Chinese around the globe celebrated the beginning of the new year. The lunar calendar notes 2016 as the Year of the Monkey. Monkey years are generally positive and people are optimistic. Monkeys are problem solvers, creative, innovative, nimble, and playful. This is a year for forging partnerships, literary pursuits, artistic ventures, and responding to change.

Each of the characteristics of the year are processes in line with the goals and vision of the DPS Foundation. Thus, as this new year, begins we look forward to one of prosperity full of hope.
