What is our mission?

We have been fortunate enough to have learned many languages! We can also recognize its transformative effect on a human and social level.
With this as our passion, we provide educational opportunities so that the power of language is accessible to EVERYONE.

As a cultural transfer and social impact network, our vision for 2023 is to connect different actors and reduce barriers related to languages by offering increasing amounts of educational opportunities.
  • Equal access to basic skills (reading and writing in Spanish and Mathematics) to 1,500 boys and girls from low-income communities in Colombia.
  • Equal access to 21st century skills, including foreign language skills, for 500 men and women in Colombia.

Sustainable development goals

We undertake a sustainable approach with everything that we do by conforming to the United Nations SDGs framework. We do so by ensuring that language.

The mission and vision of our network is directly related to these SDGs:

What do we do?

We guarantee that children in low-income communities in Colombia learn to read and write in Spanish through the Literacy + program.
We promote equal access to learning foreign languages through mentorships, cultural exchanges and workshops.
We connect people and organizations regardless of their native language through interpretation and translation services.
In 2022
We are piloting the Literacy + program in 12 rural schools with the support from SUMMA (Chile) and The Education Endowment Foundation (UK).

We are a large global
network

Testimonials

Caminando por las calles de la comuna 7 en Medellín, me doy cuenta de la diferencia entre este barrio y otros de la ciudad. Además, mi vida en Bélgica es muy diferente. Esto es lo interesante de viajar y hacer voluntariado: nos solo los niños aprenden mucho, yo como voluntaria aprendo demasiado.

¡No podemos agradecer lo suficiente a Diana y GLOT por permitirnos la oportunidad de retribuir a la comunidad de Medellín! Durante nuestro micro voluntariado, pudimos ver de primera mano el impacto que GLOT esta teniendo en las comunidades menos favorecidas con niños y adultos. A través de la enseñanza del lenguaje y la comunicación, inspiran a estas comunidades a desarrollar su potencial.
