We’re a sisterhood acting in faith to tackle the hard work of the world without hesitation.

Driven by God’s love and united in sisterhood, we work to improve the lives of women, children, and youth. Every day, we show up. We take action. We get it done. And we invite you to join us.

Our Vision

We are a powerful, fearless force driven by God’s love and united in sisterhood. With a focus on women, children and youth, we act for justice and transform communities.

We face the realities we see in the world, even when they are not the ones we would like to see. However, our goal is not to bear witness simply to harm but also to God’s love by acting boldly to change those harms.
