About Daleel Madani

Daleel Madani, Lebanon’s civil society network.

Daleel Madani is the most visited online portal for civil society actors in Lebanon. It is the most exhaustive and main reference on the civil society sector in the country.

Launched during the July 2006 war in an attempt to provide a space for collaboration between the various civil and civic initiatives at the time, Daleel Madani is dedicated to promoting accessible information about civil society, in a belief in the right to information and in the importance of transparent civil society work. In addition, it aims to strengthen civil society cooperation, thus limiting duplication of work, and enhancing the sector in Lebanon.

Through Daleel Madani, member civil society actors can register and benefit from a variety of services, such as posting resources, projects, call for proposals, events, press releases, and job vacancies. Daleel Madani currently has a directory of more than 1,300 civil society actors, including collectives, national civil society organisations, international NGOs, UN agencies, donor organisations, and private sector firms working towards the public good.

Daleel Madani is the most regularly updated and used site by civil society organisations in the country. It gathers over 1 million page views per month, and is among the 100 most visited websites in Lebanon.

Through Daleel Madani, civil society organisations and actors have a space where they can register and independently share and disseminate resources, projects, call for proposals, events, press releases, and job vacancies.

Likewise, individual users are provided with a portal where they can stay informed about civil society and public action as well as search for suitable opportunities in which they can in turn benefit society.

Daleel Madani is a programme by Lebanon Support, the research centre for and about civil society.
