What We Do
Global Village Foundation’s mission is to advocate, educate, act, forgive, and reconcile in peace through humanitarian work; seeking to end human suffering by promoting global peace through nonviolence and encouraging people to become better and stronger bridge builders.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been giving back locally with a cross-cultural exchange experience here in San Diego, California. For more information, check out our Apprenticeship program.
