Mission: To introduce people from the developed world to human security issues in the developing world while accessing their talent, skills and resources in applying appropriate, locally-supportable technologies to reduce risks and vulnerabilities in insecure communities.
Vision: To engage tomorrow’s leaders in developing sustainable solutions to human insecurities in the developing world.
7e is focused on assisting communities with humanitarian and development needs through service-learning programs for international students. More specifically, we have adopted the concept of “human security” from the UN Development Program and we use it as the back bone to how we engage with communities and educate students that go through our service-learning programs. The name of our foundation refers to the “7 elements” of human security: economic security, health security, food security, environmental security, personal security, community security, and political security. We collaborate with each community to do a “needs assessment” and we use a diagnostic tool designed to reveal vulnerabilities that a community may have in each of the 7 elements. Once 7e and the community have identified certain priorities, we develop a strategy on how our program participants can work in conjunction with community partners to plan and implement appropriate projects intended to address those priorities.
