Welcome to Project Power Global (PPG), a registered non-profit organization based in Canada! We are on a mission to spread awareness about lack of access to education, and help solve the problem, by directly supporting communities in need. Our ongoing pledge is to work with stakeholders to ensure, by 2030 no child is left behind.
The Project Power Global Pen Pal Program was a 2021 key project with a mission to make education on social issues more accessible.
Every week we did a lesson in partnership with 5 other organizations around period poverty, climate change, racial injustice, mental health awareness and more. Then following each session, students were paired up with one another to discuss the issue and ways we can start taking action!
During the summer of 2022 our founder Arissa Roy travelled to India and Nepal to film a documentary on behalf of Project Power Global to highlight education in developing nations. She witnessed the ongoing inequity that exists within the current education systems around the world. During her trip, she was able to document stories from youth most impacted by the poor educational infrastructure that exists in rural communities. Special thanks to: Koseli foundation Door Step School, and Mahatma Gandhi School in Pune.
ART and ACTIVISM
Back in 2017 when founder Arissa Roy went on a trip to India with her family, she was struck by the sheer poverty and lack of access to education. She says "living in Toronto my whole life I have never been exposed to extreme poverty before. It was an immediate shock and one which I will never forget to see children my age and even younger begging for basic necessities of life." Ever since that trip she has been fighting for access to education because she believes that is the answer to alleviating poverty.

Random Acts of Kindness
At PPG we believe in the power of RAK's. No matter how big or small, every act you do makes a difference. We supply children suffering from extreme poverty with the essential tools they need to succeed in their education. This is just one small action. But the impact is amplified drastically.
PPG was started out of a vision to see a world where every child has the opportunity to get quality education no matter where they live. In order to do this, intersectional action must be taken to addess the systematic barriers which exist.
No matter how big this world is, at the end of the day, we need one another to flourish. PPG's goal is to collaborate with many organizations and individuals to achieve our mission!
