The new offices (next to the Psychology labs) have ample sunlight, a balcony and an amazing view of Jerusalem. This is a major improvement compared to our old rooms.

The Israel21c website has published an article about Fabian Bulugu, a Glocal cohort 7 alumni, who opened a farm for at-risk youth in his native Tanzania.
Fabian worked with a local israeli organisation, Kaima, during his studies in Glocal. During his time in Glocal, he has created a local NGO in Tanzania and is using the experience from his volunteering with Kaima to open this farm, with the aim to empower youth and provide them with practical tools for their professional development.
