DAI was founded in 1970 by three graduates of Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government intent on providing a more dynamic and effective brand of development assistance. This entrepreneurial approach would look beyond traditional philanthropy to embrace the virtues of the private sector, and build a company that delivers social and economic development on a competitive, cost-effective, best-value basis—a social enterprise that is self-sustaining because it is profitable. Employee-owned DAI is now a global development company with a record of delivering results in 160 countries. But it remains today what it was as a start-up: innovative, alert, self-critical, and forward-looking—and driven by a powerful sense of corporate purposeOur mission remains essentially unchanged from the days of the founders.

DAI  is currently implementing two projects in Lebanon under USAID funding:  

Lebanon—Water Project (LWP) 

The Lebanon Water Project (LWP) is increasing reliable and sustainable access to water for Lebanese citizens, improving water management practices, enhancing the efficiency and sustainability of the public water utilities, and responding to water issues arising from the influx of Syrian refugees.

And

Lebanon—Trade and Investment Facilitation (TIF) Activity

The Trade and Investment Facilitation Activity works to boost the exports of Lebanese goods and services, facilitate investment in Lebanese enterprises, and improve the business and investment enabling environment in Lebanon.
