Our vision and aim for this conference is to introduce global involvement activities to high school and university students and to encourage their involvement. We as KU GlobalAid members know that we are on the right track if we have lit up hope in someone’s heart by the end of the day and that puts a smile on our face as well.


Global Involment Seminar Global Involment Seminar is based on three principles: inspiration, involving, network. We are aiming to make this seminar in these three steps. The seminar will start with the inspiration part, where we will have speakers that had significant success in their projects. Then we will have a fair in the involving step. There will be stands of different NGO’s and they will explain their goals, projects and how we as individuals can help them or join. The last part will be about networking, there will be a gala night including executive members of NGO’s, businessman and students, an opportunity for them to meet and share ideas.

Previous Projects of Ku Global Aid

Left Behind in Bosnia Project KU GlobalAid conducted its first social responsibility project in Bosnia-Herzegovina in spring 2012 with the partnership of International Forum of SolidarityEmmaus. During the two weeks program, attendants, which were composed at students and academicians, stayed in local guesthouses and visited suffering families along the route and contributed to supplying their basic needs. In Doboj they helped to the treatment of the patients in the rehabilitation center through joining various production activities.


Nar Project

The primary objective of this year’s project is to arrange a stand in Sarajevo, which will be open three months long between June10th and September10th for the sale of goods produced by various poor families determined by the project partners from Bosnia-Herzegovina. As a result, the goods produced by these poor families would be able to introduce to numerous tourists coming both from Turkey and rest of the world. As tourists buy some embroidery, handmade material and jam, they would have the chance to leave the country with concrete and meaningful memories while at the same time contribute to the aid program of KU GlobalAid. It is planned to organize a launching event in the night of June 9th in Sarajevo at The Yunus Emre Turkish Cultural Centre in order to present and promote the stand sale.
