Brief history of Glocal Aid
Glocal Aid was founded in 2012 with a strong desire to contribute help to people in need. The importance of engaging globally to bring help and sustainability to vulnerable areas became clear to us, and from there the road to action was short.
Currently we are focused on working in India with schools and education, but in our past we have contributed in other ways in Kenya. You can read more below.
Tuinuane women project
In 2013 Glocal Aid supported a microfinance project in Kenya called Tuinuane. The main focus in 2014 for this project was sustainability and supervision, and we saw the poverty in these areas decreased as women and families became better at business and management.
Anti female genital mutilation
In 2014 we had 90 volunteers working together with schools, authorities, churches and local leaders to stop the horrible practice of female genital mutilation. The project reached out to thousands of people, and the number of young girls forced to marriage decreased.
