GNCI improving the lives of neighbors in need


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.
