ABOUT GLOBAL NEIGHBORS
NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS
Global Neighbors is helping the marginalized community along the Thai / Myanmar Border. Each year we bring work teams from Canada & the US to build various projects giving exposure to our teams from the West as well as to show the local people we care by working alongside them. Our projects vary in size and scope from building simple structures to large schools & medical facilities. We employ local workers and purchase our materials from local shops whenever possible to stretch every donated dollar. It is our intention to empower local towns and villages with jobs and economic well being.
Every dollar donated goes towards GNCI projects
