World Neighbors is as unique and effective in 2011 as it was 60 years ago when the organization was founded in 1951. Investment is made in people not things. Because of this, those who are supported with information and training are able to find their own solutions to crushing poverty, lack of food and clean water, better health practices for mothers and babies, even savings and credit groups. World Neighbors begins work in areas most in need with the goal of leaving a self-sustaining village behind. The successes are astounding!
