Building a future through education and health care projects in Myanmar (Burma) & Thailand
We Build Buildings Improving Lives
Our main focus over the past 12 years has been to provide infrastructure for partner organizations. We have built orphanages, schools, medical facilities and Safe Houses. We’re giving people a chance at a better future through permanent buildings, where they can live and learn in a secure environment.
Work Teams – Improving lives abroad and at home
Global Neighbors work teams travel to Thailand and Myanmar (Burma) several times a year. The projects we do are varied and impact children, families and communities. The team members bring home a host of experiences that create life long ambassadors for Global Neighbors.

ABOUT GLOBAL NEIGHBORS
NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS
Each year Global Neighbors brings several Work Teams from Canada to help communities on both sides of the Thai/ Myanmar Border. Working on these projects gives them exposure to the needs of the communities and country.
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.
