BENEFITING: EDGE OF SEVEN INC
In 2015, Edge of Seven, in partnership with ACCESS Volunteers, plans to break ground on the Naro Moru Women's Resource Center in the community of Naro Moru, Kenya.
By providing a collaborative and safe place for women to gather, learn, and launch their businesses, the goal of the center is to empower women with the knowledge and confidence they need to further access their inner resources and grow into powerful individuals who possess the ability to improve their own lives.
The Naro Moru Women's Resource Center will also be accessed as a resource sharing space by local NGOs in the community working with diverse populations, such as orphans and individuals affected by HIV/AIDS. By bringing these groups together to network and take advantage of mutually-beneficial programming, the center will further improve social services in the community.
This fundraiser is set up in honor of Tom Moe of Denver, Colorado. Over the years, Tom has traveled to Naro Moru many times and has supported the community through a number of initiatives, providing technology and clean water to the village residents. In 2014, Tom retired from his career as a Principal at the engineering firm Martin/Martin. As a parting gift, Martin/Martin made a generous donation to the Naro Moru Women's Resource Center in Tom's name. This site gives individuals the ability to do the same.
Thank you, Tom, for being the inspiration behind this initiative to empower women in Kenya!
