ESL Classes begin

Mason at Van Dorn, Virginia

Proud to announce the start of our English as a second language class on February 28th

After months of planning and preparation, in collaboration with the Literary Council of Northern Virginia. We recently transported some of our beneficiaries of previous move-ins to a registration site to partake in placement exams, and based on these results will now be holding two ESL classes for beginners and advanced levels. We realize that the skill of language will serve as the key to self sufficiency and unlocking other barriers to success for the refugees as they navigate this new country. And we are proud to say that more than half of our students are women that did not have access to education in Afghanistan. It is our hope that these classes will expand further in future semesters as more Afghans are settled and ready to learn.

About Us

Global Shout is a U.S. based 501(c)3 tax-exempt (EIN#: 85-2382286) non-profit organization originally founded by students at Georgetown University in 2005 as Global S.H.O.U.T. (Students Helping Orphans in Underprivileged Territories). After an early focus strictly on the education and care of orphaned children in third world nations, the organization underwent a gradual shift in scope of humanitarian work, expanding beyond the university and dropping the acronym, with a full rebranding in 2019-20, now operating projects internationally of varying type and purpose.
