At the Global Pathways School, a child’s first day is their first step out of poverty.
New Pathways Campaign
A Message from our Principal.
GPS is more than a typical school. We remove the barriers our students face by combining education, healthcare and social work services. For $2,000 a year/$170 a month, you can fund a child at GPS and give them an opportunity to thrive.
To date, 100% of our graduates are enrolled in post-secondary education. With your support, our students are forging pathways to their dreams.
“We experienced firsthand the dedication of the teaching staff, the enthusiasm of the students and the participation of the entire community of parents and relatives in the life of the school. The children shine. The long-term effect on the lives of the children and their families and their readiness for personal and communal success in whatever India holds is evident.
Of all our charitable giving, the real-life impact of the school has been the most satisfying”
– Jim & Christie Nicol
“My wife and I are both immigrants to North America. We both come from families and cultures that prize education and hard-work, and were fortunate enough to have members pursue higher education. As a result, we’re very aware of the economic disparity that exists between a lack of education and a high quality one. It feels great supporting VCF and we’re proud to be associated with it.
The student’s beaming faces and pride in their uniforms, answering questions, learning new concepts, etc., is no different than any of our own young kids and their classmates at school - albeit, having very different economic circumstances. We feel like we’re really making a big difference, small in a global scale, but large on the individual scale.“

“Time and time again we hear from our students that the teachers, students and staff at GPS have created a community and education experience unlike any other that they have been exposed to. They come back transformed and eager to continue to create the change they seek in the world. We feel privileged to be able to give them this very special opportunity.”
– Struan Robertson, Head of The York School
