Give the Gift of Light

Light her path this Giving Tuesday. Hundreds of millions of our sisters in India are living in deep darkness...

IN INDIA...
45 million children are working today. 
47% of girls are married before 18. 
Every 17 minutes a bride is burned to death over dowry. She’s traded like property. 
Every 20 minutes a woman or girl is raped. Most go unprosecuted. 
50 million girls are missing in India. That’s as if every single girl in America disappeared. 
86% of India’s women live on less than $2.50 a day. 
250 million of them are robbed of education… It’s not too late to give it to them.

You hold the flame to her freedom. Through Sister India, you can give her a comprehensive education for a one-time gift of just $30.

80% of a students reach a fifth grade reading level within the year. Income-earning potential doubles. Before the class, 41% of students advocate child marriage; after, only 5% do. The 51% who advocated child labor at the beginning of the class has shrunk to 6%. Girls who once were sent into early marriage or child labor instead sit in classrooms. Students learn about women's rights under law, and are encouraged to Honor the Girl Child.

Right now, because of a matching donor, the number of women your donation reaches will be doubled. When you teach a woman about health, business, reading, math and human rights you light her path to freedom, opportunity and hope. 

Watch this video to see the power of the light you hold:
 

She is worthy of the freedom you have and the light you hold. Here's how you can help...

Creative Fundraising Ideas

Go latte-less with friends. 
Ask as many friends if you can if they'll give up lattes (or their special treat of choice) for just 1 week with you. Imagine if 30 of your friends gave up lattes for a week you could fund a whole class for a year!





Host a flower-potluck.
Get together with your friends in your backyard or at a lovely park. Ask each person to bring a small bouquet of flowers to share and $10 to donate to show the women of India that they're worth it! Each one can make a bouquet using the flowers brought by others so that all week she's reminded that - TOGETHER we can share worth & beauty with the world!
