The Kukurah village is found a few hours from Varanasi, in the province of Bihar. About 90 000 people live there, and it is a very poor area. In April of 2018 we started a school in the area, providing education for 120 children. In the future we hope to grow and expand the school.

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.

Past projects

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.
