Edge is an absolutely amazing organization. I personally when with a group to Costa Rica, before the trip we had a day of water, health and culture training to go through as well as discussing what to pack. THey were extremely helpful and just about everything we learned that day came in handy. The schedule of the trip in Costa Rica ran extremely smoothly, we got a lot done, connected with the communities and we were safe at all times. Edge is a remarkable nonprofit.

The Great!

I was first touched by Edge Outreach in 2007 when I attended a water training session. I immediatly saw the possibilities to help those in the world who did not have access to clean water and were suffering from water borne diseases. Our church planned and trained a group of (50) prople in Southern California and equipped them for (2) Water Outreach trips to Costa Rica led by Edge and another to Nicaragua where we installed a water purification system for approximately 2500-3000 people.

Edge is a wonderful organization that is very helpful with many experts from pump repair to community assessment, to hygiene, or any aspect of water purification and treatment. Their ministry is to make this a better world through the gift of clean water.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing sick people receive the gift of clean water, teach them about hygiene and witness the difference in their health.

My first mission trip was with EDGE and I didnt know what to expect. It was such a fun, positive expirience and a great way to help others. After my first mission trip with EDGE i did another and had a great time again! I havnt been able to volunteer for edge in two years, but ill do other missions until i can work with EDGE again.

Because of my time spent volunteering with EDGE, I've decided to countinue doing mission trips as long as im physically able to. Iv learned to step outside of my comfort zone regualrly so I can go wherever God sends me.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

At first it just made me feel better about myself, but by the end of my expirience I felt closer to God.

EDGE OUTREACH has given my family and I tremendous opportunities to serve others with a love for Christ in a variety of ways. They always challenge me to look at our neighbors with compassion. They have given my children and I the tools and encouragement to go out in this world and know we can make a difference.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Mainly through the stretching of my own faith. Too many times I have seen this organization accomplish great things that I never would have dared to try. They have helped me raise 3 wonderful children to be strong servants to our world and to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Somehow grow the staff so they are not all stretched so thin.... However I know that takes more income.

As a UofL MBA student I had the chance go work with Mark, Dee Dee, and George too help look for ways to improve the Shoeman Water Project and Edge efforts. It was a truly amazing experience to get to see all of the ways that this truly inspiring group can take something as simple as our used shoes and turn it into something as important as clean water and health training. As a Certified Fraud Examiner one the concerns I always have with non-profits is the risk of extremely poor money management. However, what I saw with Edge is what they went every step of the way to make every cent count for the mission they have laid before themselves. The leadership in this group has a way of inspiring any and everyone they come into contact with, and it's for good reason. As I saw the innovative and new ways they were creating to clean up such a fundamental life need it convinced me that this was an organization that would truly be able to transition into a staple of service within not only Louisville, but every area of the world they get a chance to come into contact with. I saw them not only develop ways to clean the water, but ways to improve getting it out of the ground, storing it locally, transporting it long distances, and keeping it clean until use. They have created methods that in themselves would have a great small business opportunity for aspiring members of developing countries. The shaman water project. Is one way that this group is working to stabilize it,s funding throughout the year, and the ability to recognize this need is yet another reason this group is insuring their long term existence. Edge has such a great outpouring of support in times of crisis, that it could cause them to falter on this large undertaking they have choose, but The Shoe,an gives them an opportunity to not only generate a regular funding source, but also to allow all of us here without the ability to take a week away from work or make a large donation to find our own little way to help!

The Great!

Working with the people who come from countries where Edge has make a true change in everyday life, and seen the passion they have for continuing this mission.

When I was working with them last this organization was making great strides at generating corporate sponsorship, and that is where this group will be able to generate the most financial and hands on support. The book the Spark, the Flame, the Torch talks about the impacts business can have missions like the one Edge has, and there are a number of companies right in their back yard with a very strong wellness focus.
