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 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.


Students served by Global Village Project since 2009

When a student arrives at GVP:

  • she is 13 years old (on average)
  • she speaks 2–3 languages
  • she comes from 1 of 12 African or Asian countries
  • she has missed an average of 3 years of school (and up to 6)
  • she has been in the US for less than 3 years

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.

We send a big thank-you to all of our lunch food providers this week. Our longest serving lunch food providers, Fermata Partners, joined us again for in-house lunch on Monday. On Tuesday, our new friends at Arbor Montessori School prepared and brought lunch along with a fun activity. GVP volunteer, Carolyn Branch, sponsored lunch on Thursday. The girls enjoyed the unlimited Uno games and engagement . We appreciate you all and we hope to do it again soon!

If you or anyone you know would like to provide lunch for GVP girls between May 13th-23rd, contact taogunjobi@globalvillageproject. Have a great weekend, everyone. #InHouseLunch #ThankYou #HappyFriday

Last fall at their Philanthropy Fair, our long-time supporters at SPANX signed-up to join us for lunch and learn more about our students and the latest work we’re doing at GVP. This week Spanx Foundation Director, Michelle Woo, and several Spanx staff members fulfilled their commitment. They sponsored lunch on Wednesday and Friday this week, spent social time with students, and discovered just how their support over the years has helped our school grow and impact refugee girls. We hope you all will come to see us again soon! #SpanxFoundation #Spanx #InHouseLunch #ThankYou Sara Blakely @ Global Village Project ... See MoreSee Less

It’s AmeriCorps week, so our #WCW are our two School Support AmeriCorps Members, D’Nasha Harkness & Macy Hill. D’Nasha & Macy are both essential to our weekly academic, administrative, and enrichment work at GVP. D’Nasha brings a positive attitude to her service daily and is intentional about building strong bonds with our students. Macy joined our team this semester and has quickly become a dynamic and supportive member. We are impressed by their ability to tutor students individually, facilitate Guided Reading and Math sessions in small groups, assist teachers with classroom instruction, and so much more. They get things done in a major way in their AmeriCorps service each day! We love and appreciate D’Nasha & Macy and we’re lucky to have them serving at our school! Thank you! #WCW #HappyAmeriCorpsWeek #AmeriCorps #GettingThingsDone #GetThingsDone #GlobalVillageProject #DayOfTheA ... See MoreSee Less

“Yesterday I found my voice. Today I’m here to shout about it!” ~Sharon Simpson Joseph

Happy International Women's Day to the eclectic and powerful young women of Global Village Project past and present! We wish for GVP girls and women worldwide to find their true voices and be empowered to raise their voice! As a school for refugee girls, we’re ensuring refugee young women have the education necessary to pursue their dreams. We know that educating girls educates a nation and can also help girls find their voice along the way. Let's continue teaching our girls how to use their educational tools and voices to be powerful women! #GlobalVillageProject #GirlsEducation #GlobalGirlsEd #InternationalGirls #InternationalWomensDay #RaisingOurVoices #EmpowerGirlsToRaiseTheirVoices #IWD2019 #WomensHistoryMonth @ Global Village Project
