THE STORY:

As a young woman in the United States, I have been provided with many privileges that allow me to be supported while I work towards obtaining a college degree at the University of Delaware. Unfortunately, women across the world do not even have the luxury of a high school degree. I have joined WE3, World Wide Women’s Education and Economic Empowerment, which is working to support a non-profit NGO, Edge of 7. This organization is currently developing a community center for women in Nepal. All donations can make a difference.

Here is what Kevin Sun, the founder of WE3, wrote -

This semester, along with many other of my phenomenal University of Delaware friends, I am helping to sponsor the construction of a community center in Mankhu, Nepal for displaced and marginalized women.

My past volunteer experiences in Nepal in 2010 and 2011 exposed to me stagnant poverty at its most extreme. I met and spoke to mothers, who all together, had zero years of education and simply wished for better for their own children.

Their situation, common throughout the world, goes beyond broken school systems, deeper than one's internal drive to succeed, and is more basic than most of us can imagine. These women lack in their lives the existence of opportunity; and the construction of this community center will change that. The earth-bag build center will provide a space for vocational and health training to women and give them a chance to break out of the deepest poverty.

While I am not able to travel to Nepal this year to help with construction, I remain passionate about empowering those on the margins of society. I hope that you will join me.
