Greeting from Global Bridge Network

Hello Everyone! Thank you for visiting our blog!

Global Bridge Network (GBN) was started in June 2016 to promote cross-cultural understanding and mutual cooperation through networking, humanitarian support and international projects.

The purpose of this blog is to inform you of our current activities and other news related to our organization and collaboration partners.

GBN has just launched so we are looking for partners and volunteers.  We welcome anyone of any nationality, culture, and background.  It would be great if you could share your talent with us.

Your support and collaboration are so much appreciated.  We will do our best to be the ‘bridge’ between you and others.  We are looking forward to collaborating with you!
