It’s when you’re able to correlate your passion to what you can contribute to the society is right when you’re living out the dream and your true purpose to the fullest. That’s where Nabil Karam is at right now, and it’s just the ideal place to be.

Nabil Karam wore so many hats in his lifetime, and whether he is out there driving at the racetrack, leading in his offices or collecting his model cars, he ensured that he was useful as possible.

His love for cars and racing lead him to become an advocate for safe driving culture and practice. So many people are unaware of safe driving practice but having a passion for driving allowed him to share the importance of taking safety measures in driving vehicles—especially with an objective to ensure that children are always safe and supervised in the crosswalk.

Nabil is highly involved with programs that carry out early childhood education, foster children empowerment, sports, arts, entertainment, and humanity promotion. We Care for Humanity (WCH) has initiated We Care For Children & Youth, We Care For Education and We Care For Arts and Culture which are very much parallel to Karam’s dreams and aspirations for these children.

Princess Maria Amor, Chairman of GOD Awards and Founder of WCH commend Nabil for his desire to uplift the youth. “I am very confident that Nabil’s accomplishments will shift the lifestyle of young men and women, and inspire them to contribute to the society while simultaneously pursuing their hobbies, careers, passion, and, interests — which is what is lacking for in this generation. We want someone who has demonstrated the perfect way to live a balanced life, and Nabil is just the perfect person who lives up to that criteria. The world needs a dose of excitement, an excellent and a hip example for today’s generation to lead their way forward. I am proud and thrilled to introduce the man behind the steering wheel of passion and caliber: Nabil Karim, 2017 Humanitarian Sports Icon Awardee of the 5th Global Official Dignity Awards,” Maria Amor exclaimed with great pleasure.
