Global Education Opportunity Program

The Global Education Opportunity Program provides engagement opportunities to students, graduates, and faculty who are interested in supporting worldwide human rights. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the GEO Program focuses on research, advocacy, promotion, and protocol through the United Nations.

Working together with the Mothers Legacy Project, a non-profit 501-3c ECOSOC accredited non-governmental organization (NGO) we address the most pressing issues identified by the United Nations of human rights and the wellbeing of women. In addition to our grassroots humanitarian projects, awareness campaigns and education programs, we work at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland where we participate in Human Rights Council and in New York, the Commission on the Status of Women.
