DAK NGO was established in the continuity of the Nabad Program

Nabad is a cross-cultural Palestinian-Lebanese intervention and outreach program of Dar al Kalima University that was launched in 2020 in response to the Beirut port explosion to support local artists and creative enterprises. The success of the program led to the establishment of DAK NGO in Lebanon to address the growing needs of the arts and culture communities, and pursue opportunities for partnerships.
