My Dream Speaks


On Wednesday, May 4, 2016, Global Language Project celebrated it’s 4th annual My Dream Speaks Benefit at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy at the Payne Whitney Mansion honoring Roberta Graves, President of the B.E. Bridge Foundation, and Naxos, the world’s largest classical music distributor and producer of GLP’s 2 children’s cd’s, Coloreando and Aquarela.

Over 200 influencers in business, education, entertainment and philanthropy enjoyed live entertainment provided by Cyrille Aimée and our second graders from Citizens of the World Charter School. GLP raised over $147,000 for it’s work that provides world language programs to disadvantaged public elementary school students in New York City.
