About KUGA

KUGlobalAid is an international service-learning program, working to build awareness and solidarity in the world. Through a global, humanitarian and need-oriented perspective; KUGA seeks to assist the world to improve itself. In line with the necessities of the 21st century in which we face complex and interrelated problems, our main motivation is to create social impact using the tools of social entrepreneurship, human-centered design, and sustainable building.

KUGA seeks sustainable solutions to current problems of Türkiye and the world. KUGA projects are created after determination of the problem, investigation of possible solution mechanisms, and designing the most sustainable and multi-stakeholder method. We are trying to build a more sustainable world with consciousness.

KUGA is supported by Koc University Office of International Programs. KUGA members consist of university students mostly from undergrads, from different majors and different academic levels. Our community members are recruited in fall semesters through a double selection process including written and oral evaluation parts.
