Your gift to GCN supports our work with indigenous people by funding the development projects they lead in their villages.
Discovering the world of differences we all have in common.
Global Citizens Network (GCN) sends teams of volunteers to developing communities where local people are involved in grassroots efforts to meet their human and community needs. GCN trip participants assist indigenous people by providing mental and physical labor for the locally initiated development projects they lead in their communities. With our focus on cross-cultural exchange, GCN trip participants have the opportunity to experience life in another culture by living with local people, eating local foods and sharing in local festivities and traditions. Trips are one, two or three weeks in length and are led by a trained team leader.
Past projects have included building a health clinic in a Maasai village, renovating a youth center on the Navajo reservation and planting an organic garden in Nepal. In 2011, we have established new partnerships in Puno, Peru; Guntur, India; Tamil Nadu, India; and Pernambuco, Brazil.
As we celebrate our 20th Anniversary year, our total commitment has grown to over 20 partner communities since Global Citizens Network was founded in 1992. Now more than ever, your support is needed to sustain these collaborative projects and expand our global network.
Your gift to Global Citizens Network’s Community Development Project Fund will support our work with indigenous people by directly funding the development projects they lead in their villages.
