THE STORY:

I launched Edge of Seven four years ago to generate capacity building services and volunteer support for initiatives that create access to education, health, and economic opportunities for girls and women across the globe.  At Edge of Seven, we envision a world where every person is empowered to create the life they want to live.

Our organization has always been based on stories and I’d like to share a few with you this holiday season.

The story of our partner in Nepal, Sonam, a woman who grew up in poverty and whose parents died when she was only a teenager.  A woman who, despite the odds, raised and put two younger sisters through school as a teenager so each would have a pathway to success.  Sonam graduated from school, became a nurse, and founded an NGO with her husband, Karma, to support community development projects throughout HER home, the Everest Region.  Sonam works tirelessly, fights every day, to eradicate poverty from her native Nepal.

The story of a girl named Nimdita who I was fortunate enough to live with for a few weeks when we were building the girl’s dormitory in Salleri and who continues to inspire me daily.  At the time, Nimdita was 16 years old and had lived hours apart from her biological parents for years so that she could set foot in a classroom every day.  Her parents saw the value in an education that they couldn’t provide and despite the obvious pain of parting with a child, sent her to live in a village where that was a possibility. Nimdita literally works around the clock and does so with a smile. She hopes to become a social worker and return to her community someday.

And finally, on a personal note, I’d like to share the story of my family and our daughter, June.  In April, June visited Nepal for the very first time to meet her dad’s side of the family.  It was an amazing trip, one filled with laughter, joy, and love.  And yet, one also filled with the constant reminder of how different life would be for June if she had been a girl born into slightly adjacent circumstances in Nepal. A place where it CONTINUES to be difficult for basic needs to be met: food, water, sanitation and healthcare.  A world where millions of girls are not in school.  It’s not lost on me that she could have a completely a different life. This is the story that fuels me.

This Holiday Season, we at Edge of Seven invite you to join us for Four Weeks of Giving.

Every Tuesday from now through Christmas Day, we will be sharing stories about the life-changing impact supporters like you have had on the girls, women, and rural communities in Nepal and Kenya. As we close out our fourth year of operation, we celebrate the fact that we have created direct access to education, health services, and economic opportunities for 2,500 individuals and touched the lives of 10,000 in developing communities across the globe.

Support from friends like you is what makes all of this happen. In 2015, we plan to build a dormitory for girls pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Nepal, a women's resource center in Kenya, and schools in Nepal, Kenya, and Nicaragua. We hope you will join us in continuing to create access to empowering resources for girls, women, and rural communities across the globe.

Consider the impact the following contributions can have:

$50 purchases 25 earthbags to construct a wall of a girls' dormitory;
$100 purchases a door or window frame for a school building;
$500 purchases enough earthbags to build an entire classroom in Nepal.

Even small gifts of $10 and $20 can help us buy materials and create access to empowering resources. This work depends on the generosity of friends like you. Thank you for joining us and the global movement to lift girls, women, and rural communities out of oppression and poverty.
