We're an international humanitarian NGO committed to child education, community development, and emergency relief projects in more than 30 countries.
Our organization is committed to building a global community where people live together in health, harmony, and dignity.
Good Neighbors has a presence in over 30 different countries allowing us to support over 17 million people and includes nearly 10 million children.
We work to protect preschoolers and children who have been neglected due to poverty. Our projects encourage their physical and emotional development by providing them with fundamental education, medical care, and nutritious meals.
We believe that self-sufficiency is the key to eliminating poverty. We provide vocational training, develop local agriculture, and establish infrastructure.
HEALTH & SANITATION
We provide medical services and offer health-related education to prevent diseases such as malaria and AIDS. We make it a priority to develop access to clean water, and also have a number of projects focused on building public restrooms and shower stalls for communities.
We empower marginalized groups of women and children through our educational programs. Our projects aim to raise awareness and cooperate with local organizations in order to lift these groups from poverty.
We rely on active participation from community members of each each country we work in for the majority of projects. We expect leaders to take over our staff's work and continue to strengthen it. We build strong partnerships with volunteers, community leaders, local governments, and other organizations.
We dispatch emergency relief teams immediately in the event of natural disasters or civil conflicts. We were on the ground during the civil war in Rwanda; the earthquakes in Pakistan, India, and Turkey; the Afghanistan war; the tsunami in South Asia; and the earthquake in Haiti.
