 Global Peace Exchange (GPE) is a non-profit, student-run international development organization founded in 2006 at The Florida State University. GPE establishes partnerships with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in developing countries, allowing ambitious and dedicated students the opportunity to work on sustainable projects at a grassroots level.


   Beginning Monday, April 10th, Global Peace Exchange’s Annual “Week of Giving” will highlight the organization’s efforts within the Tallahassee community and communities around the world. Monday’s kickoff will commence with an event on Landis Green from 7:30AM – 11:30AM. GPE invites students to join for coffee before class and learn about the organization. There will be opportunities to win a gift card to The Melting Pot or a ticket to Jam for Peace, GPE’s annual benefit concert at The Strip. From 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM Monday night, Global Peace Exchange will launch a Q&A during a Facebook Livestream. The following days will feature each of this year’s partnerships on social media: Children with Hope for Development on Tuesday, Centre d’ Education et de Formation des Jeunes on Wednesday, Clinic Nepal on Thursday, and Esperanza Verde on Friday. Follow GPE at “Global Peace Exchange” on Facebook and on Instagram and Twitter @GPE_FSU to stay updated.

I’m a staff writer for The Squall and this is my first year in journalism class. I’m a senior here at Atlantic. Writing has always been a passion of mine, so when I came across a class that would allow me to do a lot of it, I automatically took it. Every time I am around the people who are as passionate for this project as I am, it only makes me enjoy my time more. When I graduate, I plan on becoming an English major or an architecture major, depending on how I’m feeling the day I’m choosing.
