Support Indo-Caribbean Women

The murder of 25-year-old Stacy Singh at the start of 2018 was a stark reminder of why Jahajee Sisters exists, and of all the work we have yet to do to achieve gender justice in our community. Emboldened, we doubled down more than ever—and we have the gains to prove it:

  • Hired 2 Co-Directors, the first-ever staff dedicated to addressing gender injustice in our community;
  • Developed 20 new Indo-Caribbean leaders for gender justice through our Leadership & Empowerment Institute;
  • Debuted “Jahajees Rising,” a multi-disciplinary theatre presentation and community organizing tool reimagining the life of Stacy Singh;
  • Supported several women and gender non-binary people to flee harmful situations through our Emergency Fund for Indo-Caribbean survivors of violence;
  • Deepened relationships with our community partners and marched in the first social justice contingent in the 2019 Pagwah Parade;
  • Secured new support from leading women’s funders, government officials, and our community; and,
  • Received awards and recognition from the New York City Council, the New York City Comptroller, the World Heritage Cultural Center, and the Hindu Society of Berbice.

We could not have done all of this without you. Yet, there is still so much more to do in 2019! Will you give today to ensure that we can sustain and grow our work for Indo-Caribbean women? Your contributions make all the difference.
