Little Sister Sonam, writing to her penpal.

Background of the Little Sisters Fund


The Little Sisters Fund is a scholarship and mentoring program for motivated South Asian girls living in extreme poverty. Without Fund support, these girls might be forced to discontinue school, and would be susceptible to child labor, child marriage, and/or child trafficking (including the international sex industry). The Little Sisters Fund was founded in 1998 by Trevor Patzer (above), a St Pauls and Brown grad. While trekking in Nepal, he witnessed the poor state of Nepalese education and decided to change the life of one girl by supporting her education. The Fund now supports the complete 8-10 years of education for over 160 girls collectively. The goal for our event is to raise as much as possible for the Fund and educate New Yorkers about the benefits of education for these young women. It costs $2,500 to support the complete education of one girl for 8-10 years.

Rubin Museum of Art


We have partnered with Rubin Museum of Art for this event. The Rubin Museum of Art is one of New York's newest museums, having opened on October 2nd, 2004, in the former Barney’s department store in Chelsea. It is the first museum in the Western world dedicated to the art of the Himalayas and surrounding regions. The seed of RMA was planted 25 years ago when Shelley and Donald Rubin, drawn to the beauty and wonder of an unfamiliar art, purchased their first Himalayan painting. As the couple’s collection grew and their knowledge of Himalayan culture deepened, so too did their commitment to preserve, document, and share the art that so engages them. We are happy that RMA has agreed to support and host our event and hope that you will enjoy the Museum as much as we do!

Rubin Museum of Art, located at 150 West 17th Street.
