THE STORY:

Hello family, friends, and supporters!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your help. Please consider donating to my project - Building for Basa - which will enable me to go to the Everest Region of Nepal with Edge of Seven to build a school designed by Architecture for Humanity. Once we arrive, we'll hike 16 hours into the remote area, and work to build a school and infrastructure for kids who otherwise wouldn't get to go to school at all. It's incredible thinking what an impact this school will make once it's built, but it's going to take some blood, sweat, and tears to see it to fruition. I'm extremely excited about the 2 week trek but realize I need some help in making this happen.  I couldn't do it without your support and donations!

Read on for more details!

With love and appreciation,
Katie

 

DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION OF BASA SCHOOL IN A VILLAGE OF NEPAL

The community development program at Edge of Seven supports building projects in the Everest Region of Nepal, a district containing 107,686 people. While poverty levels have dropped in Nepal from 42% in 1996 to 25.4% in 2009, one quarter of the population, approximately 7.1 million people, still lives below the national poverty line of $1 per day. In order to reduce poverty in the Everest Region of Nepal, we have created a project that will reduce poverty in five communities, serving approximately 8,600 people, over the course of one year. This multi-faceted project will address six of the eight MDGs for tackling extreme poverty in its many dimensions. These goals are:

- Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
- Achieve universal primary education
- Promote gender equality and empower women
- Reduce child mortality
- Improve maternal health
- Ensure environmental sustainability

The goal of this project is to reduce poverty in the Everest region of Nepal by reducing gender disparity in education, reducing biodiversity loss, reducing the number of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation, and increasing the share of women in wage employment. It is our goal to create scalable infrastructure and programs that can be replicated throughout Nepal in the coming years.
