The Diversity & Anti-Bullying Academy (DABA) was created due to an experience that she and her husband had with their eldest child. After Dali and her husband had to advocate for their then 5-year-old daughter Dali continued to inform herself about bullying.
Through that experience, she discovered that certain policies can hinder the process if parents are unaware of the reporting system. After a few years of sharing her knowledge with other parents, Dali decided to make it into workshops for parents and children.
Due to most bullying education is provided at schools, that means that most parents don’t get access to anti-bullying education. Therefore, DABA was created for both, parents and their children.
DABA includes a series of lessons for 3rd to 12th-grade students and parents. You can learn more about DABA here.
