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 Paint Manufacturers in the United States in an effort to recycle post-consumer Latex paint to change lives and beautify communities throughout the world. We started our programs in March 2010, hoping to collect 500 gallons of paint to renovate a school and an orphanage 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 it 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. The distributed paint has a current fair market value of $4.5 million.
There is a huge need for paint in developing countries around 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 conditions but also poorly conducive to safety and health living standards. 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. The evidence of what your donations and investment achieve is easy to see: beautiful schools, family homes, clean classrooms and hope for the future.
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 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 including solar powered electricity, clean drinking water and building of new toilets. This will ensure sustainable community and enable the population including students to perform better in their studies because they need the light to do their homework after the sun goes down, enabling a more productive and healthier society. Your help will make a real difference to people's lives around the world and help eradicate the causes and effects of colors and sanitation.

For the world's poor, home isn't just where the heart is. It's also an incubator for bacteria, diseases, bad germs, mold, severe dirt walls, poverty combined with poor sanitation. The United Nations Human Settlements Program estimates that more than 1.6 billion rural residents live in poor housing with dirt walls, unpainted schools and neglected communities. Further, 90% of the 2.5 billion people living on less than $2/day in the developing world can’t save enough money to buy a 5 gallon bucket of paint usually costs $89.99 – $130.99/bucket.
