BENEFITING: EDGE OF SEVEN INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 18, 2011
Less than two weeks until we head to the Everest region of the Himalayas in Nepal to live with a family in a remote village for three weeks. We will be doing the manual labor to support local carpenters in building an extension to a school. This is something that this village of subsistence farmers has requested as a way to further educate their children. Edge of Seven is a small U.S. not-for-profit whose focus is on education, especially for girls, as a way to raise living conditions in these difficult villages of Nepal.
The trip costs we already paid cover not only our travel fees but also a donation towards the building materials. WE NEED YOUR HELP to see this project to completion. During our visit we will only get the project started. It will take several more groups of volunteers to complete the school. Your financial donations go directly to the project with very minimal administration fees. And, nothing gets held up in government corruption. Check out Edge of Seven at their website: www.edgeofseven.org THANK YOU FOR YOUR FINANCIAL DONATION !
