We pray that iSissies is a source of encouragement for you. As we savor the ordinary together – from the ridiculous to the sublime – like what we may see in shapes and colors to sharing the beauty of a sunrise – we hope the connection will run deep and that iSissies will make a difference in your life. Not because we are so smart or so clever, but because there is truth in these words: “Two are better than one, but a strand of three cords is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
iSissies is another strand in your life so that if you feel frayed or stretched, we are here to help hold you up. Women have the unique ability to encourage, laugh, comfort and cry all in the same conversation!
We also dream that iSissies can be a force to be reckoned with around the world in encouraging women worldwide. There are many needs – staggering, overwhelming, bone-jarring needs. We feel iSissies can be a part of meeting those needs and letting women know that their needs matter to us.
Today, iSissies is working to bring hope to the women of India. Through Sister India, a student can be given a seat in a class for one year for $30. For many women in India this is beyond a dream, because in this class they can learn to read and write. Our goal is to fund a class of 30 students. Click below to learn more and to give. $30 sponsors one student for one year.
$30 sponsors 1 student to go through a Literacy Class for 1 year.
Students meet 10 hours a week to learn:
Reading & Writing
Math & Business Skills
Health & the Value of the Girl Child
Why we chose these literacy classes:
They train indigenous volunteer teachers.
They teach in over 20 regional languages.
They get results: 30 years of experience, over 500,000 students helped & 80% of students graduate at a fifth-grade level of reading, writing and math after 1 year.

Yes, we believe iSissies can be a source of encouragement and a force to be reckoned with. We are a strand of more than two or three. Every iSissy matters. We can make a difference.
