Being a woman or girl in many parts of the third world is no easy task. The grind of daily life, the force of prejudice, poor education and illiteracy, difficult living conditions, non-existent or low paying jobs, sexual abuse, early marriages, and limited access to medical care all make life almost unbearable.
We believe that women form the backbone of their communities in almost every poor village of the world. They bear the children, work in the fields, toil in the house, raise the kids, and in more ways than one are truly the “keepers of the flame.” It can certainly be said of them, “The one who rocks the cradle, or swaddles the baby on her back, rules the world.”
Sister Acts transforms the lives of vulnerable women and girls by partnering with local churches, Christian organizations, or leaders to be an extension of the love of Jesus in practical ways as we serve the needs of the neediest women and girls in their community. We seek to empower and champion the valiant efforts of women through simple acts of kindness…one sister to another.
Sister Acts will expand by helping establish local chapters. Each chapter will seek to become self-governing, self-supporting and self-propagating.
