Our focus

Building a future through education and agricultural projects in Burma & Thailand
We Build Buildings Improving Lives

While it doesn’t sound exciting it makes the biggest, and longest lasting, impact on the people we help. From orphanages to schools, from renewable fishing and farms to medical clinics, we’re giving countless children a future and improving the lives for tens of thousands of displaced people.

Work Teams – Improving lives abroad and at home

Global Neighbors work teams travel to Thailand and Myanmar (Burma) a few times every year. The work they do touches thousands of children & families and Team Members bring home a lifetime experience that sows valuable seeds as ambassadors for Global Neighbors

Managing Your Donations Responsibly

Global Neighbors Canada has, through our entire history, used every dollar donated towards projects that make an impact in peoples lives. Unlike many charities, we have no paid staff or directors and no huge administration fees! If you would like to contribute towards GNCI, please click the globe above. We appreciate your generosity.


GNCI improving the lives of neighbors in need

Global Neighbors is helping the marginalized community along the Thai Myanmar Border. Each year we bring work teams from Canada 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. 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.
