• Connecting Communities Walk 2016 •

On Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 10:00 AM, Global Village Project, a tuition-free, nonprofit private middle school for refugee girls, will hold its Fourth Annual Connecting Communities Walk. CCW is a 4.3 mile walk along the PATH Trail between Clarkston, where most refugees start their new lives in Georgia, and Decatur, where our school is located. We hope that you will join us in supporting newly arrived refugee girls and their families, by sponsoring our walk.

GVP students arrive in the United States eager for education. Some are older than traditional middle school age. Most have had little previous formal education because the violence and instability that forced them to flee their home countries made it unsafe to go to school. All dream of finishing high school, and attending college. Most are the first in their families to go to college. We believe they deserve that opportunity, and our innovative high school preparatory program and nurturing environment give these highly motivated girls space to grow into very successful students and empowered citizens. Every dollar we raise by walking helps provide life-changing educational opportunity to refugee girls at GVP.
