The Global Paint for Charity "Global Paint or GPC" is a Non-Governmental Organization designed to solve the logistics of paint waste in the U.S. and Canada to promote a more sustainable, healthier, and more beautiful and colorful environment around the world. Since 2010, as many as 320,000 tons of discarded paints have been removed from the waste stream, recycled, then shipped to 44 countries in West Africa, the Caribbean, Central & South America, and targeted areas in the Middle East. The goal is to use colors to help beautify the local structures, boost people's confidence and happiness, change lives, and assist the vulnerable individuals in reaching their full potential. Everyone wins!
Our efforts have reached a population of 13000000 and our worldwide volunteers have completed 625800 volunteer hours by painting beautiful murals, family homes including schools, sport centers, orphanages, churches, and homeless shelters. At Global Paint, we believe that everyone, no matter their circumstances, deserves to live in a beautiful and colorful environment. Increasing access to paint in underserved communities could improve the local economic power for millions of vulnerable families and uplift the spirit of the people.
