Building International Relationships Since 1954
We are an independent non-profit volunteer service organization whose purpose is to improve global understanding and make peace through exchange programs between international leaders and their American counterparts in Kansas and Western Missouri. Global Ties KC promotes citizen diplomacy by person-to-person contacts to help shape United States foreign relations "one handshake at a time."
What We Do
Global Ties KC provides the link between prominent international leaders (including business, government, and non-profit professionals) and their local counterparts. Through professional meetings, school visits, events, and home hospitality we connect people from around the world with Citizen Diplomats in western Missouri and the state of Kansas.
International exchanges stimulate the economy and promote better relations with the United States.
Your donations are always appreciated and vital to our work. They help us to build relationships around the world as well as maintain and coordinate each of our programs.
