There are 600,000,000 girls in developing countries.

Change begins with HER.
Edge of Seven is a nonprofit that fuses international travel and service. 100% of public donations directly fund projects empowering girls in the developing world.
Our mission is to create a movement. We generate 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 villages that we serve with a chain of dedicated volunteers and investment over time.
