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.

Attention GVP friends and supporters in Georgia: Urgent action needed to allow refugees to continue to be resettled in the state of Georgia! See the action alert below from our friends at CRSA. You can also submit your request to Gov. Kemp by filling out the Constituent Services form here:
gov.georgia.gov/contact-us/constituent-servicesPresident Trump issued an executive order that requires governors to submit a letter of written consent to affirm their support of ongoing refugee resettlement in their state. A bipartisan majority of 41 governors have affirmed their support for resettlement so far, making Georgia an outlier as we have not yet said we are willing to welcome refugee families. Governor Kemp has until January 17 to opt-in to continue the life-saving refugee resettlement program here in Georgia. Please call Governor Kemp and ask him to sign the letter this week to uphold Georgia’s 40-year tradition of welcoming the world’s most persecuted.
