Good Neighbors is an international, non-profit humanitarian organization that plans, implements, and raises funds for the provision of services in child education, community development, health, sanitation, and disaster relief projects.
Currently, 2,447 professional staff and 20,622 volunteers--ranging from doctors and nurses to engineers and professors--work in 30 countries, supporting approximately 16.8 million people, including 9.6 million children. Our projects include building clean water wells in Africa, providing new cookstoves for families in Guatemala, and sponsoring children in Chad, Guatemala, and Malawi. We fundraise and network with other organizations through our offices in the USA, Korea, Japan, and Switzerland. We also partner with local governments, international donor agencies, and local communities to raise public awareness about development problems and solutions, and advocate for change. In 1995, Good Neighbors received the prestigious General Consultative Status with the United Nations and in 1997, we were awarded the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Award by the United Nations.
Good Neighbors opened its Los Angeles office in 2007, which currently handles fundraising, donor management, volunteer programs, and marketing for all major projects. In December 2010, a Washington, D.C. office was established to network and partner with other organizations, as well as to concentrate on obtaining grants from U.S. government agencies and foundations in an effort to implement and maintain worldwide projects.
