An Nawras Cultural Center is a project of PRODES, under the same concept of Litani Cultural Center in Beirut. This project started in 2013 in Jounieh.

It develops programs of training for women and social action aiming to strengthen the positive influence of women in Lebanese society, to offer proposals for personal improvement and to promote equal opportunities for groups of different conditions. It is intended to provide Lebanese women the necessary resources to create critical thinking and responsiveness to the problems around them.
