Would you share Sister India on social media?

SHARE MEDIA

Sadly, India is the most dangerous country in the world for women and girls due to sexual violence, trafficking and customary practices such as child marriage and dowry abuse. (Thomson Reuters Foundation)

But there's so much hope! 

Break cycles of oppression for women and girls.

Each year about 30% of Sister India students stop advocating child marriage, end their reliance on child labor, and begin to educate their daughters (and sons). 
Increased family incomes and teaching about the dangers  help to prevent trafficking of students and their children.


A gift of just $25 provides a year of life-changing education for a waiting student, and $750 educates a waiting class. Special gifts and new donations will be doubled through year end.

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 …
