Giving Women a Voice 

The root of all World Neighbors program work is empowerment - helping people understand that they are capable of changing their communities for the better.

This includes empowering women to have a voice that carries just as far as the men within their communities. helps them understand that every voice, opinion and input has value. World Neighbors is mobilizing one community in Peru to improve gender equality.

A Field Report

From landslides, floods and locus infestations, Timor-Leste has been through many natural disasters causing devastation for thousands of families. World Neighbors is working with villagers to help them prepare for and to reduce the effects that natural disasters have on their crops, homes and surrounding land.

Land, Water & Air


Environmental programs are not some new fad to World Neighbors or some stand-alone initiative. They are forever intertwined in all of our life-changing international programs. We recognize that many farmers and families simply do not understand the causes of their troubles and need help in identifying ways to improve their existing resources.

Our Mission

World Neighbors inspires people and strengthens communities to find lasting solutions to hunger, poverty and disease and to promote a healthy environment.

World Neighbors invests in people themselves through education and training, not by giving away material aid.

We provide knowledge and strengthen local capacities for change rather than merely handing out technology or money.

This makes our programs very efficient and creates lasting change rather than a short-term fix.
