Good Hands for Global dreams of making a world that everyone can live happily in.

Good Hands for Global is a nonprofit organization founded in 2003 by former President Venerable Weol-ju of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism. He aspired to live with poor and marginalized people around the world, practicing universal philanthropy and love of humanity that transcends religion, nationalism, and ideologies so that everyone can realize “You, I, and the World Are One.”

The work we loves

For the last seventeen years, the organization has been trying to protect the lives of our neighbors in the global community by providing various assistance to eighteen countries in Asia, Africa, and Central and South America. Presently, we operate in six countries that include Cambodia, Laos, Mongolia, Kenya, and Myanmar. We take a leading role as an NGO in international development and undertake projects that can make a difference in the daily lives of individuals that stretch from supplying safe drinking water and providing education to working on broader projects such as regional advancement.

Good Hands for Global 

The hands of mercy towards the world!

We offer our assistance to our neighbors in the global community who are prone to waterborne diseases. We install and maintain drinking water facilities so that they can have constant access to clean and safe water. Furthermore, for children who are deprived of the right to study due to poverty and poor education facilities, we provide pleasant learning environments and programs. As for the general safety and living environment of the local people, we not only run projects to clear landmines, but also manage social enterprises to increase their income level and help them achieve financial independence. Moreover, as part of our go green project, we run farms as well as provide applicable education to go with it so that they can realize ultimate independence



Education is a ticket out of the vicious cycle of generational poverty that gets passed down and hampers the hopes and dreams of children. Good Hands for Global offers opportunities to quality education by improving inadequate learning environment and installing suitable facilities and support programs that can foster significant changes to children’s future by building basic regional infrastructure.
