Every child needs a listening ear. Our EDGE Mentors provide an ear and a shoulder to lean on.

The EDGE (Emotional Development Guarantees Excellence) Program targets our mentees – the most vulnerable children of rural communities (left-behind-children, orphans, students coming from abusive households) – to develop soft skills such as active listening, communication, and critical thinking through a peer mentorship program advised by a professional psychologist.

Mental

Health

Every week, EDGE provides companions for kids who have lost a parental figure as a lack of parental validation can destroy self-love and self-confidence. Our peer support not only encourages one to be confident, but also inspires positive views on living.

Communication

Skills

EDGE helps build up students’ communication skills to teach students how to overcome conflicts, misunderstanding, and alienation. Our volunteers who have been trained by professional psychologists can create a unique learning plan for each student according to their personalities and preferences. This personalized approach can create a more comfortable environment for kids to practice. In EDGE, even though there is mentor and mentee, they are best friends for each other.

Horizons

Gaining a wider worldview not only encourages kids to be open-minded but also develops their creativity. Interacting with mentors who share different life experiences than them, children can acknowledge the infinite possibilities in life and eventually carve out their own path.
