We started cooperation with cartoonist Sharad Sharma in 2000 which led to the establishment of World Comics India in 2002. It has been a long and intensive cooperation and World Comics India is now a self-sufficient, empowered organisation which stands on its own feet.
The cooperation programme 2003-2010 between World Comics Finland and World Comics India was mainly funded from the Finnish Foreign Ministry’s development funds, to a total of about 140.000 euro, with about 15 % self-financing raised by WCF.
Over the years, eight Finnish trainers taught at workshops in India, and Sharad Sharma was a frequent visitor to Finland. In addition to training workshops, the grants also covered during the last four years office rent, salary of staff, equipment, administrative expenses, etc. Read more about the workshops
