Starting Sunday, June 20th, join Global Village Project in honoring World Refugee Day. From June 20 - 26, we’ll be sharing both virtual and on location experiences to help you step in more closely to understand the unique journeys of GVP students, alumnae, and friends: Interactive digital journeys will allow you to follow a GVP student from her home country to Clarkston. A parallel in-person journey through Clarkston will introduce you to a few of the great local organizations that serve our families. New videos from GVP alumnae and friends will put a face and powerful voice on the impact of forced displacement and a collective vision for a better world.

We hope you'll join us for this week of powerful storytelling and double your impact by donating to GVP at bit.ly/GVPWorldRefugeeDay2021. Our goal this week is to raise $100K for the students of our school, and all week long gifts will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $35,000!

A Singular Education

Global Village Project is the only school in the country dedicated to educating refugee girls who have had their education interrupted.

It Only Takes One

Each and every girl we educate has the potential to not only change her life and that of her family’s, but also her community and even the world. Your gift helps us prepare our students to be undaunted, and allows us to pioneer an innovative model of refugee education to share with educators globally. DONATE NOW >

Merging Many Worlds

Our 50 students come from 1 of 19 countries of origin in Africa, Asia, and South America, and they collectively speak 26 different languages—from French to Kinyarwanda and Arabic to Karen. APPLY FOR ADMISSION >

Arts are integral to teaching and learning at GVP providing students with ongoing experiences that give them tools to express themselves and learn that creative pursuits are a part of innovative thinking. Music, performing, and visual arts act as a means for students to display their strengths, knowledge and identities. Now, with a recent grant from a generous partner, GVP will substantially enhance its STEAM offering over the next two years.

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) is an interdisciplinary and integrated approach to 21st century teaching and learning that emphasizes creativity, communication, and collaboration.


Students served by Global Village Project since 2009

When a student arrives at GVP:

  • she is 13 years old (on average)
  • she speaks 2–3 languages
  • she comes from 1 of 10+ countries of origin in Asia, Africa, and South America
  • she has missed an average of 3 years of school (and up to 6)
  • she has been in the US for less than 3 years
