Welcome to a Lancashire-born but internationally inspired, social enterprise.
Global Amigos is the umbrella company comprising various projects in the North of England. The plan is to is to venture into developing nations and launch community hubs. Our existing projects benefit from over a dozen fabulous volunteers. We receive zero funding; all money is generated through commercial activities which we then apply to good use.
We’re on an ever-evolving journey but all share similar passions. Use our business services, or support the links at Global Amigo (Andy’s blog) and you support a much broader spectrum of work.
“The last few years have been spent linking with & learning from communities around the globe & within our own neighbourhoods.
Whilst continuing to develop our UK projects, the ultimate vision is to create a sustainable community hub in a developing nation; to create opportunities to learn from and share with members of a local community, and to welcome members of the international community who wish to experience life in a developing country – whilst supporting an ethical / environmentally conscious project. We’ll continue to promote worthwhile third party programmes such as Chennai Challenge (summer programme in India) and International Citizenship Service (three month volunteer placements globally) as well as welcome opportunities for collaboration with other inspiring & community-engaging projects”
