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.

GVP’s Mentor Program hosted the JumpSpark ATL’s Strong Women Fellowship program yesterday. The JumpSpark Strong Women Fellowship is for Jewish teenage girls in Atlanta in 9th-12th grade. Their program, the Fellows engage in relevant and empowering learning that speaks to what it means to be a woman in 2018. This month the program met at GVP and focused their learning on refugees and their community. GVP students and alumnae and the Strong Women Fellows had dinner and conversation, exchanged experiences as teenage girls and participated in activities to get to know each other. Thanks to the Director of JumpSpark, Kelly Cohen and the Strong Women Fellows for the fun activities and interesting conversations.
