EMPOWERING PEOPLE, TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES
Good Neighbors Canada is a registered charity, operating since 2017 from our office in London, Ontario.
We work everyday to give children the chance to grow up in a healthy environment, by helping communities worldwide find ways to make positive changes that last.
We are part of a global non-profit established in South Korea.
Founded in 1991, our first projects were supporting long-term patients with Pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and emergency relief in Bangladesh.
Currently, we have offices in seven countries and 52 branches in Korea. We implement a wide range of development projects in 38 countries, and lead special programs like psychological support for children affected by humanitarian crises.
Only five years after our foundation, we have achieved General Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC) for our work with refugees.
We cooperate with local governments and United Nations (UN) agencies, such as the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and the World Food Programme (WFP). One example is the Zero Hunger Project, implemented in Tanzania and Bangladesh.
In December 2017, we have officially partnered with Huron University College in London, ON. We are looking forward to collaborating with students to make good changes both for our local and international communities.
We are actively seeking partnerships and sponsorships in Canada. Please contact us if you are interested in building a relationship with Good Neighbors Canada.
