New Activities for 2013

Once again, Sisterhood Agenda has been given the opportunity to provide activities in St. John to celebrate National Women’s Health Week in May 2013.  

Hypertension, diabetes, obesity/overweight, and heart disease are prevalent on the island and there are no gyms or fitness facilities.  While promoting natural health with health walks, hikes, and other fitness activities, wellness
packages will be distributed and activities will be coordinated with local agencies who will participate.

As part of the SHE celebration, Sisterhood Agenda will honor the following Global Partner leaders in the health field:
-Belinda Harden, Founder and President of Mary McLeod Bethune Humanitarian Network
-
Maimah Karmo, Founder of Tigerlily Foundation
-Dr. Margaret Kilibwa, Founder Tropical Clinics
-Dr. E. Faye Williams, Esq., National Chair of the National Congress of Black Women

Sisterhood Agenda would also like to make the Sisters:  Healthy & Empowered (SHE) Activity Guide available to other agencies and individuals by publishing it on Amazon with its other educational materials. Stay tuned for details!

Girls Develop Leadership Skills in St. John

The girls participating in Sisterhood Agenda's Sisterhood Mentoring Program are no longer locally funded.  However, they continue to meet with Sisterhood Agenda President, Angela D. Coleman, who is developing leadership within the group to help them become more self-sufficient and self-governing.  The group meets at the Youth Center in Cruz Bay, St. John.

Some of the development includes life skills, responsibility, peer mentoring, and sisterhood.  They are also learning how to raise funds by offering products and services to the public such as bake sales and car washes. Group members are also hopeful about doing cultural exchanges and visiting colleges in the United States.

New Videos Being Posted

Girl Band members took a hiatus as we raised funds and looked for a new meeting space. In addition, two Girl Band members moved and left the island! Sisterhood Agenda is incorporating new activities such as dances, songs, costumes, and a routine for St. John Carnival in July. Several members of the community have been assisting by
identifying talent for Girl Band.

Sisterhood Agenda is setting up a new Global Training Academy, which will also be a great meeting space for Girl Band to practice and rock out! There will be African drums, gourd instruments, tambourines, maracas, mirrors, microphones, and a sound system.

Sisterhood Agenda will post new Girl Band videos-COMING SOON!
