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.

GVP students participated in the second session of the Atlanta Hawks Exchange program this week. The girls recently shared their favorite cultural traditions and holidays with a school in Pinghu, China as a part of the program. Representatives from the Hawks came to facilitate a discussion regarding traditions and the changes they wish they could see in the world. They also received a special video message from Jeremy Lin, answering the questions they composed for him during the last session. Jeremy also let them know that he had been traded to the Toronto Raptors, and was disappointed he would not be able to visit GVP in the near future. Thanks to Allyson Jones and the Atlanta Hawks for continuing the program. #HawksExchangeProgram #GlobalVillageProject @ Global Village Project ... See MoreSee Less

GVP was a proud sponsor of the 2019 New Americans Celebration! Today hundreds of supporters showed their love for refugees at the Georgia State Capitol. NAC is organized by the Coalition of Refugee Service Agencies and it is always an impactful experience for new Americans and refugee/immigrant supporters. Our Form 3 students participated in the event. They called Rep. Mary Margaret Oliver and Sen. Steve Henson out of session and they met with Sen. Elena Parent’s staff. GVP Board Member & Mentor, Steve Heckler, represented GVP again this year as a NAC Team Leader. Steve facilitated training with his group that included tips on engaging legislators. Groups put advocacy in action by visiting representatives’ offices and calling them out of session. CRSA closed the day of advocacy with a press conference at the Capitol to mark the release of their Annual Report. Speakers included UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency Ambassador Kat Graham and GVP/Lutheran Services staff member, Crispin Wilondja. Thanks to everyone that joined us for #NAC19 at the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and the Georgia State Capitol. #GaLovesRefugees #CRSA #GlobalVillageProject ... See MoreSee Less
