In Nepal. #DoGoodToday

Meet Murgamma: she lives in Bangalore, southern India, and is a mother of three. Her husband’s poor health prevents him from working so Murgamma took his place as a stonemason, breaking rubble from morning to evening—a difficult and dangerous task that pays $2/day. 
In 2011, Good Neighbors India offered her a loan and she has since been able to open her own food stand and sell delicious Indian snacks, earning up to $8/day. “I am very happy now,” she tells us. “I can let my children have a better education with what I earn.”

BEFORE: A traditional cookstove in Guatemala made from raw wood and dirt emits toxic fumes throughout homes and requires children to gather firewood for the family instead of attending school.
AFTER: A new, safe, energy-efficient Good Neighbors cookstove provides a clean, modern stove top and a chimney that removes all smoke from the home. + Every family that receives one must enroll their children in school. 
HOW WE DO IT.

It’s #WorldHealthDay! This year, the World Health Organization is reminding everyone that mosquitoes, flies, ticks and bugs can pose a major health risk. Diseases such as malaria, dengue, and yellow fever are preventable, yet they have the biggest impact on some of the world’s poorest people. Good Neighbors is doing our part by distributing mosquito nets to families in Chad and Malawi.
