This is a big thanks to all of you who have voted for ASSET India in Round II of the $1 Million JP Morgan/ Chase Giving Facebook voting contest. If you haven’t been able to as yet, you have until midnight on January 22nd to cast your vote.

ASSET India is a noble non-profit organization who provides marginalized women and children in rural India access to the skills and knowledge needed to escape the sex trade. They hope to use the $1 million prize money to give 5,000 women and children access to literacy programs.  They will also produce wireless routers to enable access to their programs for those living in rural areas. The program is currently limited to 500 due to space and resource limitations so this prize would dramatically increase the program’s impact and enrollment.

We ask you to support ASSET India’s efforts by voting for them. As evidenced by film producer Pat Loewi’s video of students at the ASSET center Delhi, ASSET India’s programs do much to enable women and children to escape the sex trade environment by arming them with knowledge, self-confidence and purpose.

The voting link is: http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving/charities/717045

Their target is 100,000 votes and we can help them reach their goal.

Thanks so much for your help!
