End Her Wait

Every last one matters.
We are faced with a unique opportunity to accomplish something remarkable for her!

In January we'll start making plans for the next school year.  Thousands of classes of students are still waitingFor their sake, let's not miss this opportunity to serve them!

UNESCO has identified the women and girls of India as some of the most oppressed in the world today.

Through Sister India, you can equip them to lift their families from poverty, end child marriages and child labor, protect their children from trafficking, and educate their daughters instead.

Joining together, we can bring hope to all of the waiting classes and students!  Every last one.
  • When Sister India started, there were over 175,000 students waiting for classes. 
  • Together we have educated more than half of these students!  Thousands have stopped advocating child marriage and child labor, and begun educating their children instead.
  • By providing funding for just 1,250 classes in 2019, we can finally end their wait.
  • Matching funds from donors who want to join with us will double new and increased gifts and cut in half the amount of funding needed to end their wait.
We're moving forward in earnest, to educate these remaining waiting students by year end.  Every last one matters!
Together, Let's End Their Wait
Your part in this, each one of us doing what we can, will make the difference to reach this goal for them.  Please join us!  Follow us on social media and in emails, watch our new video, or visit our website, and you will find simple, fun ways that your involvement can make a difference for these women and girls, their families and communities.  (Tag us on social media to share your ideas with us too! )

What a joy it will be, to face the new year knowing that we have reached the goal together and their wait is finally over.   That they will be valued and protected, and every last one of them can be educated and uplifted. 
You can use your influence and involve family, classmates, friends, coworkers, and neighbors to get the word out, and make a difference through the end of the year!  (Host a party, run a race, meet a friend for coffee, give your birthday, make a plan for #GivingTuesday!)

For ideas to help these waiting students, you can
visit our home page or watch our new video, and share with someone who might be interested.  Through Sister India  we can bring powerful change for the oppressed.

If you are already a regular Sister India supporter, "Thank you!!"  Your students are grateful for bringing their dreams to life!  Holistic education is the single best gift to protect and uplift women and girls.  As one of our graduates, Esha told us, “The first day of class, I felt I was in a dream . . . I couldn’t believe I was finally going to school!”  
Please continue your generous support and advocacy for students, and if you’re able to make a special gift by year end, this would be a great time to do it.

If you’re new to Sister India, welcome!  Every gift you make will end the wait for students on the list, and will be matched.  They need your voice!
  Your assistance and support are powerful!
Together, we look forward to closing out the year with life-changing news for all of these waiting students.  Every last one!

It Takes a Village

You’ve heard the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child,” but in this story, a little girl is making waves in hers. 
Lily is a 12 year-old-girl who comes from a poor family in India. She is the third child of five with three other sisters and one brother.  Her father works as a mechanic earning very little; what money he does make is put toward his alcohol and tobacco addictions, leaving her mother to provide for the family.
Lily’s mother earns 100-150 Indian rupees per day cutting pieces of cloth, which is roughly $1.44 to $2.15 American dollars. With this meager amount, she must provide for her family of seven. Lily and her sister often help their mother with her work cutting cloth. 

Lily learned about our classes through her sister and started attending regularly. She is always on time and eager to learn! Our teachers encouraged her and taught her literacy skills, and she is now able to read words in Hindi. Her teachers say that she continues to improve, and she spends two hours …
