What we’re grateful for: education, family and friends

The Global Village Project is a free private school in Atlanta for girls aged between 11-18 who came to America as refugees. With most having missed years of education, learning at a public school can be difficult for both students and teachers, with many students having delayed reading and math skills, and the teachers and schools not having the resources to give refugee students the individual attention they need. The Global Village Project offers dedicated education, which addresses the specific needs of refugee students. To celebrate Thanksgiving this weekend, the students got together to express what they’re grateful for:
“When I came here, I was so happy and also I got to learn English here and my English is getting so better.”
"I appreciate when my mom buys me stuff I don't have."
“When you show appreciation, you can be kind. You can be nice. If you are so mean, when you show appreciation you can change.”
