Global Village Welcome Walk for Refugee Girls' Education
Walk for a cause! Now in its seventh year, the Global Village Welcome Walk is a chance for community members to walk alongside Global Village Project (GVP) students, parents, staff, and volunteers to support refugee girls’ education. The 4.8 mile walk along the PATH Trail will begin at Refuge Coffee and finish at Global Village Project, a school located in Decatur Presbyterian Church (205 Sycamore Street, Decatur, GA 30030). Afterwards, join us for festivities at the Finish Line Celebration, featuring face painting, the Big Burgers and Wings food truck, school tours, a performance by the GVP Chorus, and more!
Our goal is to bring together 300 walk participants for our largest walk yet. Every dollar we raise makes it possible for us to provide life-changing opportunities to young refugee women who have survived persecution, war, and violence. GVP relies on individual donations so that our students can attend free of charge. Show your support by registering today!
To register or donate please visit: http://bit.ly/RegistrationWW19. All participants will receive a t-shirt.
Global Village Project is a nonprofit, accredited special purpose school that prepares refugee girls with interrupted schooling and limited English to excel in high school and fulfill their dreams. The 2019 Global Village Welcome Walk is presented by Ameris Bank.
