We are a team of people who are interested in exploring the power of play in early development. We created DardaCats to make communication fun & easy.
How it all started
DardaCats was founded in reaction to the explosion of August 4. We were in Beirut when it happened, and wanted to provide a source of comfort and support to children in those times.
We collaborated with psychologists, and created DardaCats to invite conversations and engagement with children. (hence the name DardaCats = Dardacha “conversation” + Cats).
We didn’t know each other before DardaCats, but we were put in contact by common friends because of our shared passion for play and its role in early child development.
Our Social Mission
From day one, DardaCats aims to make social and emotional learning less abstract and more accessible, especially for children who need it most. That is why we partnered up with multiple family centric NGOs.
Our NGO partners
Through our amazing NGO partners, DardaCats has been reaching vulnerable families and helping children struggling with speech, confidence, bullying, loss or any big life transitions.
