BENEFITING: EDGE OF SEVEN INC

Lisa Pilchman

THE STORY:



            As a member of WE3 at the University of Delaware, I am working with other awesome UD students to raise money for nonprofit Edge of 7, which seeks to empower women in remote villages in Nepal. 

            These women are empowered through education.  And the project seeks to build sustainable community centers at which women and their children can receive the education they need to help them live healthier lives.  The community centers are build from earth-sand bags so as to withstand inclement weather and earthquakes.  The funding goes to supplies, construction............

I am personally trying to raise a minimum of $1,000 by May to help WE3 and Edge of 7 complete this earth-bag community center. This center will empower over 60 displaced and marginalized women and children who currently live in the Mankhu Village by providing them with vocational and health training through the addition of a computer lab, handicraft workshop, community room, and health post.

 

To reach this goal, I need your help. I am asking you along with 40 of our friends to consider donating $1.50 each day to this campaign for two months. I was amazed when I discovered the impact that we could have upon these women simply by donating less than what we spend each day on a cup of coffee. $25 will buy a desk or chair in the workshop, $50 will buy access to clean and safe water for one person in Mankhu, and $100 will buy a window or door for the community room or health post. I am so excited to be a part of this effort and I hope that you will join me.

Also, yo can be assuredt hat  all donations are tax-deductible! And if just if you’re curious, you can visit Edge of 7’s website at: www.edgeof7.org to see the specifics of the Mankhu project and all the other projects their doing!
