GOOD NEIGHBORS CANADA

Who we are

You might be wondering why our name doesn't have the Canadian spelling of neighbours. That's because we are an international non-profit founded in 1991 in South Korea.

Good Neighbors Canada is one of Good Neighbors' 7 fundraising countries, along with the United States, Korea, Japan, Australia, Taiwan and the United Kingdom. At the same time, we value our local community, so we opened our London, Ontario office in 2017 at Innovation Works, where we can meet other social innovators.

What we do

Our focus is on protecting children's rights to make sure every child grows in a safe and healthy environment.

We have General Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC) and are the official partner organization of the United Nations World Food Program (WFP).

To help build sustainable futures, we specialize in global community development projects involving health, education, water and sanitation and income generation. We also have emergency relief initiatives and a child sponsorship program.

We work in close cooperation with local partners in 38 countries to assess communities’ needs, raising awareness, advocating for change and promoting self-sufficiency.

Currently, about 16.8 million people, including 9.6 million children are supported by our efforts.
