Celebrating our first ten years

Our Mission


The Gabriela Mistral Foundation, Inc. carries on the legacy of Gabriela Mistral, particularly, her love and care for the children and seniors of her native country, Chile.

For this purpose, the Foundation promotes and celebrates the life and work of the poet's literary and humanitarian achievements by holding programs and events, and, by providing support to organizations that make an impact in the quality of life and opportunities of those in need.

To promote and disseminate the extensive and important literary work of Gabriela Mistral--Nobel Prize in Literature 1945--the Foundation translates her poetry  and essays into English and produces printed and audiovisual material  bilingual editions of her work--which the Foundations makes available at no charge to schools in the US, Chile and around the world.
