Summary

The Sisterhood Empowerment Project is a global project that helps girls from around the globe recognize their greatness and options in life by providing sisterhood mentoring, a positive peer group, exposure to career and work options, life skills, culture, and community awareness.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Girls of African descent are disproportionately affected by poverty, teen pregnancy, school dropout, HIV/AIDS, obesity/overweight and other life outcomes. Sisterhood Agenda implements sisterhood mentoring programs such as A Journey Toward Womanhood, SHE: Sisters Healthy & Empowered, and Sisters In Business along with locally adapted, culturally appropriate, customized strategies to link Sisterhood Agenda's 3,500 partners and the global girls they serve.

How will this project solve this problem?

The spirit of sisterhood must be the foundation of any women's empowerment movement. Using a hands-on, multi-media approach rooted in the African "rites of passage" tradition of girls coming together to be taught by the women in their communitites, Sisterhood Agenda uses a modern approach to instilling knowledge, cultural roots and community awareness by using technology to promote global girls self-development. Mentoring, peer influence, and collaboration are the general strategies employed.

Potential Long Term Impact

With its use of technology using mobile phones, computers, blogs, videos, video conferencing, social media, webinars, meetings, conferences, plus learning software such as Noodle and iTunes University, the Global Educational Empowerment Project prepares girls to meet the challenges of their generation by giving them tools, awareness and knowledge to avoid negative outcomes for self-sufficiency, educational attainment, life enhancement, and ultimate success.
