Mission

Edge of Seven generates awareness and volunteer support for projects that invest in education, health, and economic opportunity for girls in developing countries. We empower girls by supporting initiatives that are locally driven, community focused, and sustainable. It is our goal to make a measurable difference in the areas that we serve through a chain of dedicated volunteers over time.

Programs

Edge of Seven projects are collaborative endeavors with grassroots organizations that are already making tremendous strides to empower girls and alleviate poverty in developing countries. We enable project execution by offering volunteer support, technical assistance and funding to these local partnering non-government organizations (NGOs). In addition to our in-country projects, we educate and energize domestic and international communities through media and volunteer advocacy to stir social action and create momentum for future funding and volunteer resources. Edge of Seven advances its mission primarily through the Community Development Program. This program revitalizes rural villages through community-driven projects that bring necessary sustainable infrastructure, like schools, sustainable housing, and water supplies, to remote regions in Nepal and this year Tanzania. To date, Edge of Seven has completed six community development projects in rural Nepal, including a primary school to accommodate fifty-five students in Jarang; a girls' hostel in Salleri to house forty girls attending the nearby higher secondary school; a sustainable community water supply in Purdu; a secondary school in Phuleli constructed using revolutionary earthbag technology, a higher secondary school serving 150 students in the remote village of Basa, and a water supply in Salleri.
