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.
The Pears Family Foundation is one of the oldest and biggest supporter to the Glocal programme. In a rare interview in the Jewish Chronicle, Sir Trevor Pears explains what brings him and his family to support activities in Israel and the Jewish world and how International Development and solidarity are essential Jewish values.
Gal Kramarski, a Glocal student in cohort 7, has recently returned from a five month internship in Morocco with the High Atlas Foundation (HAF), a local organisation promoting development and Human Rights.
