Since then, together we’ve built a new movement—one united in the idea that Sisters know best how to serve their communities, but that also brings new eyes, fresh insight, and bold action to make a difference, side by side.

  • Comprehensive services encompassing maternal and child health and childhood malnutrition
  • Access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene education
  • Sustainable infrastructure solutions
  • Education and vocational training, microfinance opportunities, and durable housing solutions for displaced families
  • Survivor-centered support for victims of gender-based violence
Revitalizing Somalia's fishing industry and job market

In collaboration with the Somali Stability Fund and the Jubaland Ministry of Fishery and Marine Resources, we deployed a fleet of mobile, solar-powered fish kiosks throughout Kismayo.
