The mission of EDGE (EDucational Growth and Empowerment) Worldwide is to carefully assess, develop and advance educational outcomes to empower communities in need. Harnessing the everlasting power of education, we work with key local community members to determine their needs and address the curricula outcomes required to alleviate poverty.
EDGE Worldwide is a not-for-profit charity certified by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit commission (ACNC) and has been created by experts in the field of social development and education and overseen by board members with legal, social development and accounting expertise. Our founder and chairman is the Founder and CEO of EDventure International, Jamie Christopherson. He has been developing and executing educational and social development projects across 6 continents for more than 15 years, focusing on empowering communities in need through education and gradually creating the scope for social change.
Since 2011, the organisation EDventure International has created numerous not-for-profit projects that it has sustained. With continued growth and success of major projects such as Phum Ou School and Vocational Training Centre which has grown from 25 to 250 students, founder Jamie Christopherson foresaw that it was crucial to create a separate charity to manage these projects moving forward to ensure their sustainable growth. Therefore, EDGE Worldwide (EDucational Growth and Empowerment) was created and now EDventure International has passed full control of these projects to EDGE Worldwide.
We are very proud of the positive impact and progress that has been made by EDGE and look forward to continuing to collaborate and implement similar practices to as many communities in need as possible by harnessing the power of education.
The current major project for EDGE Worldwide is the Phum Ou School and Vocational Training Centre in Siem Reap Provence, Cambodia. As always your support and connection is very valuable to us. Please ensure to join our community.
