Our Projects

 

All of our projects focus on the pressing needs of people living in developing nations. We strive to provide clean water to villages, safe cookstoves to families, and nutrition and education to children.

We tailor all of our operations to be as effective as possible by collaborating with others to accomplish goals, employing locals to staff our offices, and creating only those projects we believe will be most beneficial for the countries we work in.

Come explore what we do:

CHILD SPONSORSHIP

Can you keep a promise? A pledge of $35/month to a child in a developing nation can change his or her life forever. Our child sponsorship program - going strong for 20 years now - focuses on lifting children and their families out of poverty through the power of education. Your sponsorship goes directly to supporting the cost of sending your child to school including tuition, books, uniforms, nutritious meals, and medical care.

Once you've chosen a child to sponsor, our program will keep you updated with an online profile of your child and annual progress reports.

WATER FOR LIFE

We believe clean water is a right, and without it, serious health and education issues arise. In the local communities of Africa and the Caribbean, children collect water from muddy puddles or nearby rivers and the filthy water leads to cholera, malaria, and other debilitating diseases. As a result, attending school also becomes a low priority.

In response, Good Neighbors started Water For Life, a project that builds water wells near schools for local communities. One well serves a village of 4,000 for up to 21 years! More importantly, it's a crucial step toward achieving our greatest mission: universal primary education.

FOOD FOR KIDS

Food is a right and more than one billion people - almost a sixth of humanity - don't have access to it, according to the United Nations. At Good Neighbors, we're doing what we can to feed as many children as possible. We've been sending a variety of foods including chicken, beef, beans, rice, corn powder, and vitamin juice to 18 countries in need.

We also recently launched a Facebook campaign by partnering with a generous donor who is sending one bowl of food to a child in a developing nation for every new Like our page receives. Please consider donating today and help feed a hungry child.

PROJECT COOKSTOVES

3 billion people around the world cook, eat, sleep, and work around their indoor fires and old cookstoves every day. The toxic exhaust from indoor fires lead to more than 1.9 million premature deaths annually and contributes to emphysema, lower respiratory infections, and other diseases. Children are often sent out to collect firewood, keeping them from attending school.

Our cookstoves are changing lives: they're designed to eliminate toxic indoor gas exposure and reduce fuel consumption, and they're also multipurpose, serving as an oven, stove, furnace, and table. For $400, one clean cookstove prevents illness, helps children return to school, and provides healthier food to families.
