Building Up Basa & Trekking for Girls

Though it seems like spring is still springing in many parts of the country, we at Edge of Seven are busy preparing for fall and our much-anticipated return to Nepal's Everest Region, where we'll expand our higher secondary school campus in Basa and lead individuals inspired to educate and empower girls and women on a trek to Everest Base Camp.

In Basa, we are planning to construct more earthbag classrooms at the higher secondary school we completed in the summer of 2012. This is the only higher secondary school in the region, and the additional classrooms will not only accommodate more students who currently do not have the opportunity to pursue a higher education, but they will also allow for the expansion of curriculum on the campus, as teachers plan to add English language and business development courses. We are currently seeking volunteers to help us with this earthbag build in November. If you are interested in learning more, please visit our website or email us with questions. 

We'll also be leading individuals with a passion for adventure and girls' education on a fundraising trek to Everest Base Camp. This trip is open to anyone who is able to meet the fundraising requirement, and ambitious trekkers will also have the option of adding on a climb up Island Peak or a cultural tour of our projects in the villages of Salleri, Basa, Phuleli and Purdu. The money raised through this trip will go toward our 2014 projects in Nepal. For more information on joining the trek, please visit the "Adventure" section of our website or email us with questions.

As always, thank you for your past and continued support of Edge of Seven and our work to empower and educate girls and women in the developing world!
