How are we helping to educate young women in India
Do You See What I See? is an charity organisation that aims to make a positive sustainable impact on communities around the world through education and gender empowerment. Through sponsoring higher education for young women, we hope that they will emerge as leaders in their community and make a significant impact in the place in which they live. By being role models for young girls in their community, by using their knowledge and training they have gathered at university or college, these young women will act as powerful change agents. By helping one woman gain an education, we can help hundreds around her. Education is the key to breaking the poverty cycle and educating women is the key to changing the world.

How can you help educate these young women?
We would like people in our community to be connected on the most personal level they can be. We would like people to personally sponsor a young woman – that way you will get to follow her journey and have a close connection. Work places can also sponsor a young woman in a similar field and this will become a great foundation for mentorship throughout her degree.
Our sponsors will not only pay for their university degree but will also provide a small living wage to the family – this will make up for lost earnings given while she is studying and ensure she doesn’t drop out during the degree. When the women finish their degree and find employment they will then pay back the money into the fund, which then enables other young women in the red light area to go through the program also. This way the organisation continues to give back to the community for many generations and the cycle of generational poverty and prostitution can be broken.
