Welcome to NYC S.A.G.E. (South Asian Gender Equality)! We hope to see you at our meet-and-greet happy hour.
For our first happy hour, we will be fundraising for New Light, a non-profit organization that provides aid to the women and children of the red light district in Kolkata, India.
The happy hour will be held on November 7th, from 7pm-9pm, at Bar 515 in Manhattan. The bar is located at 515 3rd Avenue, between 34th Street and 35th Street, New York, NY 10016.
In the meantime, please find information below on New Light and feel free to donate through our page. We will also be collecting donations at the event.
Since 2000, New Light has been providing safe shelter, education, and recreational facilities for the children of local sex workers, particularly the daughters.
What your donation can help support:
$40 buys school uniforms and shoes for a child of a local sex worker for one year.
$60 funds food for one month for one child of a local sex worker.
$250 supports a child's education for one year.
$500 provides vocational training to an at-risk young adolescent for one year.
