Impact & Dialogue Education

I write about issues that are important to me —emotionally, as I encounter the world. Coming into contact with Pallabi Ghosh and her quietly consistent work for those who are completely voiceless is humbling and gratifying to me.
I have a birthday tomorrow. That's not important. What IS important is that it's my opportunity to post this request for donations from my network of friends and well-wishers for an organization and an individual who is making a difference, albeit small, in one of the most difficult areas of human depravity ---human trafficking. In India. Mostly with very young girls and boys.
Pallabi Ghosh is the founder of an NGO ~ Impact and Dialogue Education in India. She has been working for nine years and has helped an estimated 10K+ young people. The enormity of human trafficking, whose root cause is poverty and demand, in India, is on a scale of 1.7 million annually (that's only the REPORTED cases).
I met Pallabi when she volunteered to be a guest at one of my FEA mentoring sessions and have come to follow her daily, yes daily, work ---educating, public speaking, site and ground-level interventions and rescues.
I ASK FOR YOU TO CONSIDER A SMALL DONATION ON MY BIRTHDAY.
She doesn't have the ability to process online donations from outside India (Indians, please donate directly) , so here's the PAYPAL option:
