Giving For Living (GFL) is an International Nonprofit Organization dedicated to improve the life of children in disadvantaged communities by providing clothing, toys, and books, and by providing sustainable solutions through the implementation of various projects aimed at improving the outcast of their future.
Our main program is “Biblioteca Movil” we operate a Mobil Library, where small vans filled up with books, travel from neighborhood to neighborhood, loaning books to kids and teenagers. Lending books to children is a new concept in Latin America and we are at the forefront of such concept. Putting books in the hands of disadvantage children represents a life changing event for the kids.
We also often use programs such as “Shoes for Books” to motivate children to borrow books, read them, and return them with a short synopsis of the book, and for that they will receive a free pair of shoes. We also distribute educational fun material to help educate them about the importance of “washing Hands”, “Attend School” etc…
Today, over 12000 children receive books, clothes and shoes and Women receives micro loans in countries like Guatemala, Dominican Republic, and Haiti.
