A Singular Education

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

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 45 students come from 1 of 12 African or Asian countries and collectively speak 15 languages—from French to Kinyarwanda and Kirundi to Matu Chin. 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.

Thank you for an amazing Welcome Walk!

Our global village turned out on November 3rd to celebrate the diversity of our community.

Welcome Walk 2018 was a tremendous success! This year's walk raised over $56,000 for Global Village Project - more than double the impact of last year’s event. Turnout was also a record high, with nearly 250 participants walking or volunteering. Whether you got involved as a sponsoring business, a community partner, or a personal fundraiser; whether you donated in support of the event or joined us in person... without YOU this day would not have been possible! On November 3rd we showed that our city and our GVP community are welcoming spaces! We demonstrated our commitment to raising up diverse young leaders like the refugee young women of GVP. Watch the Welcome Walk recap video.

We are Raising our Voices in Celebration of the many ways that your support helps make the dreams of refugee girls a reality. As part of the global village that surrounds our students, you are having a direct impact on their futures by giving them access to education that is specific to their needs, to nutritious lunches, to counseling, to music and arts lessons, to a mentor who will support them through high school and college, and much more. Hear a GVP alumna’s story about her experience and how the GVP community supports her.

REMINDER: The first $25,000 donated this month will have triple the impact! Every $1 donated will be matched by an additional $2, multiplying the ability of a single gift to do even more for supporting our students’ education and dreams for the future! We have under $8K of our $25K match funds available. Help us reach our match goal and $200K fundraising goal this week!
