Culture

PADICO HOLDING values culture as the most an important tool of intellectual enlightenment that contributes to the promotion of public awareness of society. Culture is an integral component of national identity. It plays a key role in preserving the national memory from erosion and the Palestinian identity from melting and decay. Cultural globalization, a classy term for information inundation and overloading, threatens the cultural identity of societies beyond all geographical barriers. Sponsoring cultural activities has always been a vital task that is directly integrated with the sustainable development of PADICO HOLDING social responsibility agenda. Based on this comprehensive vision of the development process, PADICO HOLDING  has particularly sponsored the cultural activities closely tackling the Palestinian cause and stimulating the collective memory  to remain live and effective in the face of the attempts to take away the awareness of the Palestinian people.
