We are firmly convinced that our sisters around the world are in deep trouble. Daily life is a never-ending struggle just to survive.
We have seen the battle for survival first hand as we have traveled the world, the plight of women in third world countries is appalling. The day-to-day grind of poverty is relentless; simple tasks in our lives, are all consuming from sun up to sun down in theirs.
Life-threatening diseases are “normal” day-to-day occurrences. Moms kneel at the tiny gravesides of their babies weeping uncontrollably for lack of a mosquito net to prevent malaria or a few dollars for malaria meds to save their baby.
Many families in the world live on less than $2 a day and are forced to eat beans and rice nearly every day because it is all they have or all they can afford. The thought of 3 meals a day is unheard of. But, we have a dream that this can be changed…if only the global sisterhood will unite.
We see the global sisterhood rising up and uniting to care for the needs of each other. We see women and girls becoming mobilized in practical ways to participate in “Sister Acts” of compassion. We see our sisters being freed from the bondages of poverty, disease, famine, war, and injustice all over the world. We see burdens being lifted from our sisters’ shoulders and their minds being freed from years of anxieties.
We see sisters experiencing hope, joy, laughter, dancing, and singing a new song… all because women and girls around the world are motivated by compassion and responding in simple, practical, life changing ways.
Together we CAN change the lives of vulnerable & marginalized women and girls all over the world!
All it will take is simple acts of kindness- woman to woman, girl to girl, teenager to teenager, young woman to young woman, widow to widow, grandma to grandma. We cannot do everything, but each of us can do something.
Sister Acts is a vision whose time has come. Lives change when needs meet compassion. Hope is born! We have identified 25 simple solutions to 25 challenges that women and girls in third world countries face every day.
Our ultimate vision is to see 1,000,000 women and girls join our annual “One Million Sisters” Global Campaign. Women and girls age 5-95 will be invited to donate a one-time annual gift of $25 or more to meet the needs of our sisters who need our help.
Every vision has a beginning…Ours is Uganda
We are raising $50,000 for Phase I of our Pilot Program that we are launching in February of 2017 Uganda.
We would love to see you get involved in this exciting start-up and “sow seed” into this new global ministry initiative
