About

The Global Paint for Charity seeks individuals, strongly committed to our vision and mission, to participate in the leadership of our organization.

The Global Paint for Charity, Inc. (AKA "GPC" or "Global Paint") is a non-profit organization headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia working together with commercial businesses, residential households and other not-for-profit organizations in an effort to recycle Latex paint to change lives and protect the environment. We started our programs in March 2010, hoping to collect 500 gallons of paint to renovate schools and orphanages in the Caribbean and Africa within the year. In fact, the paint was collected in a single day was unbelievable. The spectacular response from our supporters, partners, volunteers and the media has encouraged us to continue to collect paint and raise money to distribute paint in many very poor villages in isolated rural locations around the world as we can. We have redistributed more than 120,000 gallons of paint to help with renovation and rejuvenation of family homes, homeless shelters, schools, churches, orphanages, and hospitals in many major cities in the U.S. and targeted communities around the world.

There is a huge need for paint in the world. Very many of the existing family homes, schools, churches, orphanages, and buildings that we have seen in 18 developing countries are in such a poor state of renovation and beautification that they are not only uninhabitable in the rainy season but also dangerously close to collapse. Together, we can bring hope, color, happiness, pride, encouragement, uplift the spirit of many underserved families living in slum areas and poor environmental conditions, put smiles on many faces in different continents one gallon at a time. We provide excellent feedback to all our partners and supporters, we constantly post photos of our achieved projects on our social media networks and Before and After Pictures Gallery.

According to the World Health Organization, mosquito viruses result in the deaths of more than 6 million people every year. And 2 million African children die each year from diarrhea and bad germs from the unpainted walls and insanitary conditions. Just one touch of a latex paint on the wall is to become the latest tool to reduce the number of mosquito deaths by 75% in developing countries. Many of the communities that we help to rejuvenate and beautify have no electricity, clean drinking water, no toilets, in order to ensure sustainable development in these areas we are hoping to be able to offer additional items in these communities including solar powered electricity, clean drinking water and building of new toilets. This will ensure sustainable community and enable the use of computers as well as providing light in the evenings. Your help will make a real difference to people's lives around the world and help eradicate the causes and effects of poverty and sanitation.

Volunteer with us to inspect, count, store, and record paint inventory in warehouse. Prepare containers of paint for shipping, usually 5 or 55 gallons.
