We Added Sister Circles, Of Course!

Sister Circles for Women & Girls
Sister Circles for Women & Girls

In addition to integrating trauma-informed (TI) sister circles in Sisterhood Agenda's SHE:  Sisters, Healthy & Empowered program, we are offering sister circles for college students in March 2016, in recognition of Women's History Month. 

The TI sister circles for college students will focus on sexual assault isues on campus, healing processes, and identification of local resources.These unique services will be coordinated with university's who are part tof the Associaton of American Universities and Sisterhood Agenda is requesting sponsorship from each participating institution.

Sisterhood Agenda's TI sister circles are offered in an innovative online format to:  1) pool talent in offering support, 2) maximize participation from any geographical area with Internet access, and 3) to minimize costs. It will be interesting to see how this works in terms of effectiveness and impact.

College students are not the only ones targeted for educational empowerment in March 2016!  Sisterhood Agenda will offer another TI sister circle for helping all girls throughout our global network identify and respond to traumatic events in their lives.

Knowlede is power and sisterhood support is priceless. At Sisterhood Agenda, we believe this type of educational empowerment promotes the bond we share as women and girls while creating a solid mental, physical, and emotional foundation for future success.

Almost Ready for SHE Services

Sisterhood Agenda has identifed ten girls for SHE:  Sisters Healthy & Empowered program services.  They are residents of St. John between the ages of fifteen and sixteen.

We have also identified local resources for all of the SHE activities, including facilitators, yoga instructors, and water sports instructors.

Once Sisterhood Agenda's Sisterhood Empowerment Academy (SEA) eco-building is completed (next month), Sisterhood Agenda will schedule the SHE retreat.  We anticipate a retreat in December 2015 before local holidays and another SHE retreat in the next calendar year, 2016. 

We are anxious and excited to get started.  The girls are sure to have a great experience complete with sisterhood, support, empowerment, health and healing!

Phases 3 and 4 Done!

SEA Building Phase 3
SEA Building Phase 3

Thank you for all of your support during this important SEA project!  At Sisterhood Agenda, we are very pleased with our progress so far.  As you may know, construction tends to be a bit slower in the islands.  There are a number of factors why this is the case.  However, with our careful attention to eco-friendly design and process, we knew that it would be an educational process for all. Overall, the SEA project has been a very progressive one.

Phase 3 of the SEA building process included completion of the following tasks:

  • Prepped the 40′ shipping container for storage and occupancy
  • Examined hurricane resistance structuring with cost considerations
  • Building the foundation with concrete footings, columns, and flooring

Our builder has been commended for careful attention to our green building strategy.  For example, we utilized a lot of used materials, especially wood, to save our trees and other natural resources, plus reduce building costs.  Using the shipping container was also eco-friendly and cost-effective.

Phase 4 of the SEA building process included completion of the following tasks:

  • Flooring was completed
  • The water catchment system was expanded
  • Exterior walls were framed and erected
  • Materials were secured for roofing
  • More local contractors and reuse materials were identified

So far, so good! We anticipate completion of Phase 5 by the end of November 2015.
