The EDGE Project has always been strong in its values of sustainability, integrity, and effectiveness. However, our work over this past summer, especially the Quench Lingira project, made us question whether or not we were following those values. But while we may not have changed Lingira to the extent we once wanted, we believe we have done a great deal to change our members into responsible global citizens. With this in mind, we decided that our focus must shift to a more objective style of learning to provide more timeless lessons.
Thus, after months of careful deliberation, we will be moving on from the EDGE Project. We are building on the valuable lessons we have learned after four summers of travelling to create a new organization, Tawi UW. Tawi will allow us to escape from some of the moral dilemmas involved in volunteering abroad, and instead direct our attention to learning and growing as individuals. We hope to provide faculty lectures and discourse on global issues throughout the year, and offer the opportunity for students to partake in self-led field studies abroad during the summer.
We would like to thank you for your support of the EDGE Project over the past five years. We have poured our hearts and souls into this organization, and we are saddened that its time has come. Yet we remain hopeful that Tawi will prove to be a wiser, more responsible organization that will provide students with a unique experience abroad and at home. We hope you will keep in touch and learn more about our new organization!
