The Importance of Safe Spaces for Women & Girls

Sisterhood Agenda's SEA: Sisterhood Empowerment Academy was badly damaged by Hurricane Irma last year.  We are still recovering, knowing that this facility fills an important void by creating a safe space for women and girls where few comparable spaces currently exist. The building is still very beautiful, surrounded by blue ocean waters.

For effective empowerment and resilience, access to necessary resources, including space to gather, is critical.  As a quality service provider, Sisterhood Agenda recognizes the importance of the physical environment in supporting empowerment activities for women and girls.  With the SEA, Sisterhood Agenda created an innovative physical environment to support training, programming, and holistic health goals.

Sisterhood Agenda has a track record of successfully creating “safe spaces” where the girls are free to be themselves and their voices are heard. Before building the SEA, Sisterhood Agenda built a learning center in Durham, North Carolina.  Sisterhood Agenda plans to build facilities in select regions in the U.S. 

Sisterhood Agenda buildings are eco-friendly, female-centered facilities that provided a community base of knowledge, support, self-determination, and healing.  Affirming and welcoming, Sisterhood Agenda facilities are safe, dedicated space for mentoring, tutoring, counseling, health service coordination, and other appropriate services.  

Connecting to nature can promote healing. Sustainable design and nature-inspired architecture are characteristics of Sisterhood Agenda facility spaces to maximize holistic health impacts for women and girls.  Sisterhood Agenda’s SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy facility in St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands was awarded the National Energy Globe Award for sustainable building and design in 2017 before being damaged by the storms.

We look forward to continued success in our mission to educate, support, and empower women and girls around the globe, often in unique and unexpected ways.

Holistic Health & Wellness Builds Resilience

Sisterhood Agenda's SHE:  Sisters, Healthy & Empowered project is based at our SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy.  SHE is at the SEA!

After extensive hurricane repair work, Sisterhood Agenda's SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy is looking great!  It is a unique experience to see a beautiful building created, damaged by Mother Nature, and go through the process of being reborn.  

We are extremely grateful for assistance from the public, including Global Giving and donors like you.  This project would not exist without your help!

Our building is stronger and looks better than ever, thanks to upgrades and effective hurricane mitigation building strategies.  Gratitude and appreciation are expressed to our builder, Vincent Powell, who dedicated his time and talents once again to Sisterhood Agenda's special project. 

Based on the small island of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, the SEA is a peaceful, holistic health and healing space that supports Sisterhood Agenda's mission to educate, support and empower women and girls around the globe with a diverse and inclusive sisterhood.  The SEA is a unique, one-of-a-kind oceanfront facility that offers a mental, physical and spiritual retreat surrounded by a natural environment that nurtures the mind, body, and soul.

We look forward to continued SHE activities when the hurricane rebuilding process has been completed.
