We have good news.



Have you ever had a dream come true? Think about how you felt when your once-guarded hopes transformed into tangible realities. That surreal, giddy, expectant-for-more feeling is how we are feeling today at Sister India.

A couple of weeks ago, in honor of International Women's Day, we were preparing to get the word out about what our sisters in India are facing. Our dream: end her silence by inspiring people online to be her voice.

And then, you blew our socks off. Here's proof that we are powerful together:

5 amazing bloggers took time out from their usual posts, and encouraged their followers to speak up for women in India. Because of their efforts: 30 people gave to support students, 5 people created fundraising pages to rally their friends around the cause--- and the best news? $3,614.40 was given to completely fund 120 students!

The video we released, telling Americans about what Indian women are facing has made its way around the internet. In just 2 weeks 18,919 learned about the plight of women in India through this video because of the 204 people who spoke up by sharing it!

More proof: Nicole from San Diego just turned 30. Instead of asking for presents she asked her friends to give to educate the poor in India. Her goal was to fund 30 students--- she's now surpassed her goal by funding 37 students and raising $1,100.

All of this wouldn't be possible without your encouragement and support. You just gave 145 Indian students a gift that opens countless doors and changes the future for their families as well as generations to come.

Thank you for making dreams come true!

Prevention is Essential The high rates of trafficking among the oppressed populations we serve is one of the reasons the Thomson Reuters Foundation named India as the most dangerous country in the world for females.  Once someone is trafficked, rescue is unlikely. To end trafficking in India we must stop the flow of human lives into exploitation.  Tragically, only 1% of all people who have been trafficked are rescued.  According to Gary Haugen of IJM, traffickers in India are more likely to be struck by lightning than to be prosecuted for their crimes.     Your support shines a bright ray of hope, equipping students, their families and communities to prevent trafficking. Your support serves the most vulnerable populations in India, and gives them the tools they need to prevent and resist trafficking in their families and their communities.    Students are educated to recognize the dangers so they can protect their children and communities against trafficking.  Because of their incre
