Project Power Global
Welcome to Project Power Global! We are so glad you are here and joining us on our journey to a world where education is seen as a fundamental aspect of life! Our mission here at PPG is to connect students from different parts of the world to learn from each other, to foster a friendship and support one another. In addition, we work to provide quality access to education in developing parts of the world, as well as inspire others to start taking action on issues they care about!
We aim to provide the opportunity for ANYONE, regardless of age, background, social status etc. to join our organization and the fight for education.

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 I fighting for access to education because I believe that is the answer to alleviating poverty. And PPG is one of the ways I am doing this."
