Jahajee Sisters Emergency Fund

Support survivors of gender based violence impacted by COVID 19

A fundraising campaign for Jahajee Sisters

During COVID 19, our Emergency Fund will support Indo-Caribbean women and gender-fluid people residing in New York who are in crisis and in need of immediate financial support. Priority will be given to survivors of gender based violence, however, we will consider requests from others due to the increased need in our community at this time. 

As part of our response to the pandemic, we are increasing our emergency funding and accepting donations. 

Funds can support the cost of food, baby items, child care, moving, temporary housing, attorney's fees, and emerging needs during COVID 19.

If you or someone you know would like to submit a request for emergency funds, please call 347.201.4931 or email JahajeeSisters@gmail.com.

Jahajee Sisters is a project of the Center for Transformative Action.

About the Organization

Jahajee Sisters is a movement-building organization, led by Indo-Caribbean women, committed to creating a safe and equitable society for women and girls. We foster solidarity and empowerment through dialogue, healing, the arts, leadership development and grassroots organizing.

​During the period of Indian Indentureship (1838-1917), Jahajee Bhai and Jahajee Bahen (Ship Brother and Ship Sister) were terms used by our ancestors to unify and support each other in the midst of the arduous voyage by sea from South Asia to the Caribbean. Despite adversity, they were able to forge bonds, survive and thrive. In this spirit, Jahajee Sisters seeks to build community and power to address critical issues challenging Indo-Caribbean women.

Jahajee Sisters is a fiscally sponsored project of the Center for Transformative Action, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by governing laws.
