The Global Learning Community Project (GLC)

The Global Learning Community (GLC)

The GLC began as a Chab Dai (Cambodia) Coalition project in 2012 to build a coordinated and informed anti-trafficking movement, on a global scale.

In 2021 the GLC transitioned from a Chab Dai project to a cooperative community project with its own vision, mission and core values, all of which were chosen by the community members. In 2023, the GLC community voted for Dark Bali to join Chab Dai as co-secretariat, and in July 2024, Dark Bali became the sole secretariat of the Global Learning Community for a 3 year term

One of Dark Bali’s primary objectives is to connect the Indonesian grassroots anti-trafficking community into the global space, and the GLC has been a fantastic mechanism to achieve this goal. We were thrilled to bring in many of our coalition partners into the GLC community as well as pilot the translation of the GLC’s Monthly Learning Calls into the Indonesian language so that English is not necessary for participation for our coalition.
