Who we are

We are a non-profit organization (NGO), a foundation inspired by the love of languages. We were fortunate to learn several languages, now we manage opportunities in relation to languages for people, communities and social organizations.

GLOT

Comes from the greek term that denotes "language, form of expression". It is part of our core, as an NGO we bet on languages, with love as a universal language.

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.

Fall in love with our cause and know our unique model

ALPHABET APPROACH

Our Cause

PROMOTE MULTILINGUALISM AND LINGUISTIC DIVERSITY, providing opportunities and managing projects that generate a positive change for human and social development.

We have a unique approach focused on the person and the communities, which allows us to fulfill our mission and the development of our programs and projects:

ALPHABET APPROACH

Conventionally in the learning process of a foreign language, one begins among others to know the alphabet. In GLOT we choose the first 4 letters of the English alphabet to build our approach and bring our cause to life.

Access

Is to give to communities or individuals opportunities in relation to languages.

Bilingualism or multilingualism

It is the basis of the programs or projects executed by GLOT. It is important to keep in mind that for GLOT, love is another language.

Change

It is the positive, individual or social transformation that can be achieved through access to GLOT opportunities.

Development

Understood as the human and social development of the community or individuals benefited, from the programs or projects carried out by GLOT.

Did you know that our ALPHABET APPROACH retains the same letters and words in our official languages?

Change language to see it for yourself

GLOT VALUES

LOVE

Inspired by the love of languages and convinced that this is a universal language, we consider its immense power so love moves us to do everything.

MULTILINGUALISM

We believe in multilingualism and linguistic diversity as a cultural richness and a means of human and social transformation.

RESPECT

For the cultural diversity and the differences of all languages in the world.

GRATITUDE

As life has given us the opportunity to make languages part of our path, always be grateful and allow others to do so.

SUSTAINABILITY

We look for the sustainable development in the fulfillment of our objectives from the economic, social and environmental perspective.

GLOT PROGRAMS 

As an NGO

our cause has no distinction between people (or languages), from our point of view each language has unique nuances, sounds and colors that make up the identity and cultural richness of people and communities.

We work

to provide access to opportunities in relation to languages, for both those who love them and those who, even without knowing it, have all the potential to fall in love with them, that is why our programs are for ALL, and especially for those people or communities that do not have the resources to learn or improve a language. We also work for social organizations that have the language barrier to manage their projects.

LET’S KNOW THE OPPORTUNITIES WE HAVE FOR YOU

FOR COMMUNITIES

to bring love for languages to vulnerable communities, all through social inclusion projects and initiatives based on the potential of each community.

GLOT AND THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were born at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012. The objective was to produce a set of universal goals that meet the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world (UNDP). They have been established for a period of 15 years, from 2015 to 2030, and replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) established in the year 2000.

At GLOT we believe

in the sum of all efforts to achieve broader objectives that benefit not only present but also future generations.

We adopted

3 Sustainable Developments Goals of the United Nations, since as a civil society organization we can have a universal and common language to make known that with our programs and projects, we work so that "no one is left behind" .

According to the UN, 6 out of 10 children and adolescents are not achieving a minimum level of proficiency in reading and math, and 103 million youth worldwide lack basic literacy skills, and more than 60 percent of them are women. If this happens with the native languages, then how to achieve proficiency in foreing languages? This objective is key in the development of our mission as an NGO, since we aim to provide access to opportunities that promote multilingualism and linguistic diversity, working not only with foreign languages but also with native languages, in this case Spanish.

There is enough evidence about the great number of inequalities that exist nowadays in the world. Languages are not the exception, since there are children who do not achieve basic reading and writing skills so they will be left behind and will have learning problems compared to other children of the same age. In addition, not everyone has the same access to information and resources for learning a foreign language. At GLOT we want to offer these opportunities in a way that there is true social inclusion and the barriers caused by languages are broken. These opportunities are for people and communities as well as for social organizations.  

The fulfillment of global, national, regional and local goals is only possible with the association of several partners. At GLOT, we promote partnerships that contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and the goals that governments and civil society actors set to promote a fairer world where “no one is left behind”. We are open to dialogue and the generation of partnerships with diverse stakeholders that help us to fulfill our mission and that at the same time, from our work, its objectives are strengthened.
