MEDLIFE partners with low-income communities in Latin America and Africa to improve their access to medicine, education and community development projects. Its means of accomplishing this is to build a worldwide movement empowering students and volunteers to become advocates for change.

Although the nonprofit used several Give Lively products, its use of our Peer-Based Fundraising tools — Peer-to-Peer Fundraising pages for individuals and Team Fundraising pages for groups — has been truly exemplary.
