Mission: Edge of Seven generates awareness and volunteer support for projects that invest in education, health, and economic opportunity for girls in developing countries. We empower girls by supporting initiatives that are locally driven, community focused, and sustainable. It is our goal to make a measurable difference in the areas that we serve through a chain of dedicated volunteers over time.
Results: Salleri Girls Hostel - In 2011 we completed a hostel for 40 girls in the Everest Region of Nepal. The hostel is a safe and affordable housing option for approximately 40 college-bound girls from rural areas where higher education is not accessible. Purdu Water Project, 2011 - In collaboration with the village of Purdu, Edge of Seven and our Nepali Project Partner, The Small World, introduced basic sanitation concepts to the village, including a community water supply, filters and tanks and 8 taps.

Geographic areas served: Nepal
Programs: Help build a school or water supply in Nepal! Or sign up for a trek to drive social impact in Nepal's Everest region! Edge of Seven invests in projects that improve education, health and economic opportunity for girls in developing communities. We support locally driven, community focused, sustainable initiatives by bringing awareness and volunteer support. Edge of Seven creates fun, but challenging adventures. We do this by offering a diverse array of projects for volunteers to choose from. However, the goal behind each adventure is the same: pushing personal limits in order to improve the lives of girls. Volunteer opportunities range from short-term group programs (often infrastructure projects) to long-term individual placements with one of our partnering NGOs.
