Our beliefs are at our core.

Global Friends strives to be the catalyst of opportunity, independence and joy for youth worldwide. We begin and end each day by recognizing that we have the opportunity, ability and responsibility to creative positive, lasting transformations.

Relying on the natural resilience of youth, we strive to be a catalyst for opportunity and independence that results in individual and community joy.

We believe in:

  • the value of every individual
  • fostering personal connections that are authentic and enduring
  • supporting education that is relevant to individuals and their communities overcoming the paralyzing, destructive force of poverty
  • collaborative, self-sustaining and mutually-beneficial relationships
