Thirteen years ago, the founders of Global Village Project made a commitment to meeting the educational needs of refugee young women and preparing them for high school. Their vision stemmed from a larger cause that still exists today. According to UNHCR, 84 million people across the world are currently displaced. We condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the humanitarian crisis that has resulted leaves us deeply concerned. The heart of our work focuses on refugee girls in the Decatur and Clarkston area of Georgia; thus, we recommit ourselves to staying true to our vision that refugee girls have a safe place to learn and are equipped with the tools they need to surmount the barriers to equity and accelerate their education.
To directly support the people of Ukraine, please connect with our partner organizations; including New American Pathways and the International Rescue Committee, who provide immediate services to newly arrived refugees in Atlanta.
