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.

"The story of why I serve on the board of Global Village Project begins with my mother."

Our community is made of incredible individuals who are deeply invested in GVP's mission, and Board Member Han Pham is one of them. Han's journey to serving as Vice Chair of GVP's Board of Directors is one that spans generations and continents - from her mother's escape from war-torn Vietnam to her own experiences growing up in the U.S. READ MORE >
