Global Communities

Global Communities is a global development organization committed to working in partnership with communities worldwide to bring about sustainable, impactful changes that improve the lives and livelihoods of the vulnerable. Development is not something they do for people; it is something they do with them. They believe that the people who understand their needs best are the people of the community itself.   They make a difference by engaging with communities, governments, the private sector, and NGOs as partners for good—bringing together complementary strengths and shared responsibilities to work toward common goals.   Global Communities has existed for more than 60 years. Until 2012, they were known as CHF International and, before that, the Cooperative Housing Foundation. They are a non-profit organization.   What distinguishes their work? The power of what they do lies in their ability to develop relationships that put the people of the community at the forefront of their own development. Enriched by the ability to build trust and understanding, it is their heartfelt focus on community and partnership that distinguishes their work. Global Communities currently works in more than 20 countries around the world in AfricaAsiaEurope & the CaucasusLatin America & the Caribbean and the Middle East. Vision They envision a world where everyone has the freedom, means and ability to live and prosper with dignity. Mission Their mission is to create long-lasting, positive and community-led change that improves the lives and livelihoods of vulnerable people across the globe.
