World Neighbors is an international development organization that works with some of the most remote and marginalized communities in ecologically fragile areas of Asia, Africa and Latin America.
World Neighbors support the transformation of communities by helping people address hunger, poverty, disease and other challenges that undermine their livelihoods, and by inspiring lasting leadership and collective action for change.
Since 1951 World Neighbors has helped more than 25 million people in 45 nations improve their lives and the communities where they work. World Neighbors helps people develop, manage and sustain their own programs.
Most programs begin using locally available resources and simple, low-cost technologies. As people gain skills and confidence, local leaders and organizations emerge to carry on the work, multiply results and participate in coalitions advocating for wider change. World Neighbors programs integrate food security, farming, literacy, community and reproductive health, water and sanitation, environmental conservation, savings and credit, non-formal education and income-generation activities.
