Educating Girls in Nepal: The Need is Now

Did you know that seven out of every 10 girls in rural Nepal will drop out of school before attaining a secondary-level education? And that each year it's estimated that 10,000 girls who are not in school in Nepal become victims of sex trafficking? 

Today, there is an urgent need to create more access to education for girls in Nepal. Doing so will not only help ensure that more girls grow up to lead healthier lives, earning an income and improving the futures of their families and communities, but it will also help combat social problems like sex trafficking and child labor that so many school-aged girls fall victim to each year. 

At Edge of Seven, we continue our work to broaden educational resources for girls in remote areas where few opportunities exist. In 2013 and 2014, we have plans to expand the capacities of our higher secondary school campus in Basa, Nepal and our girls hostel in Salleri, Nepal to serve more students and girls on the path to achieving a higher education and a better life. 

You can help us today by making a donation to our organization through Global Giving, spreading the word about our work, or signing up to volunteer on one of our projects in Nepal.

Together we can make a huge difference for so many marginalized girls in Nepal. Thank you for your continued support.
