About World & Daafi:
WHAT IS WORLD & DAAFI?
World & Daafi is an aspiring online heritage and culture journal. Our aim is to preserve and exhibit the world’s different heritages, by documenting their unique traditions and customs, iconic architecture, and hearty food recipes passed on from generation to generation, to name a few.
Through our articles, features, and interviews, we aspire to promote respective curiosity towards the different cultures and heritages of the world.
HOW DID IT ALL START?
Since we were young children, my father and my grandfathers were natural storytellers. One of our memorable childhood times were when we listen to their stories about the family’s traditions, historic events that happen around the world, and their travel adventures. So naturally, we grew up with a passion for travel and a thirst for knowing more about the people and their unique lifestyles, cuisines, norms, and even beliefs. Nowadays, with all the rapid change happening in the world, we think this is the best time to spread the thought of conserving these heritages.
WHAT DOES WORLD & DAAFI MEAN?
The word World represents heritage and cultures around the world. As the world is a harmonized fusion of cultures. The word Daafi literally means warm in Arabic, but it can also mean cozy, or nostalgic, which is the meaning we are going for here at World & Daafi. Hence, the name World & Daafi represents solely our objective to inspire ourselves and others to recognize the world’s different cultures and heritages, while keeping our own legacies alive.
