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.

"In Fulani, which is my native language, welcome is translated as 'sadhi,' which means to feel like home. It also means to feel a sense of belonging." - Mamadou Diallo, Immigrant and Refugee Services at Inspiritus

Thank you to Mamadou and our partner Inspiritus for sharing what "welcome" means to you! Today we are thankful for all of our GVP partners and our wider community of support. Thank you for standing with us in welcome!

#ThrowbackThursday to three years ago when GVP students shared what they're most thankful for at GVP: the learning and the support, definitely, but also the delicious food at Agnes Scott College 😁We love good food, too, especially for Thanksgiving!

What are you thankful for this season?

Welcome to day 4 of the 2020 Global Village Welcome Walk! Thank you to everyone who has Supported 47, Shared 47, and Moved 47 so far this week!

Another reason why we do this event every year: Refugee learners and English Language Learners tend to be marginalized by traditional educational practices. In contrast, GVP's strengths-based model centers students' needs and experiences to create a more inclusive, equitable, and empowering approach. That's how we're able to give refugee learners the support they need to thrive, and you can support our impact by giving below:

We're 98% of the way to our new goal of $60,000! Let's keep the momentum going - give today at ow.ly/vH4I50Cua3g!
