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 received a special visit from internationally acclaimed actor, comedian, musician, and former refugee, Tomas Kubinek. The girls were entertained with a magic show, songs, and an inspiring exchange with the, "certified lunatic and master or the impossible." The students enjoyed the performance, especially one of our students that shared the stage with the artist. Thanks to Mr. Kubinek for returning to GVP today! Also thanks again to the @rialtocenter at @georgiastateuniversity coordinating the visit. #GlobalVillageProject #TomasKubinek #RialtoCenterForTheArts #HappyWeekend ... See MoreSee Less

Today was our first day of GVP’s Women’s Health class this school year. For the next few months, students will engage in weekly sessions with professional health educators to explore health related topics. Today's classes covered making healthy choices. We appreciate members of our Health Team (Marsha Scott, Genia Duchon, and Lynn Goldowski) and our newly added volunteer to the team, Emory University student Amulya Marellapudi, for facilitating this health education class. #HealthyGirlHealthyWorld #WomensHealth #GirlsEducation #GlobalVillageProject @emoryuniversity @ Global Village Project ...
