Joint African Leaders Initiative SISTERS
About JALI SISTERS
Mathare Slum, This is Where we make a Difference
JALI (Joint African Leaders Initiative) sisters was established in 2016 and registered in 2017 to enhance self-reliance of vulnerable women, advance and sustain social justice to vulnerable women, girlsand physically challenged children from informal settlements.
JALI Sisters provides them with opportunities to pursue their dreams, through empowerment programs targeted at improving their socio-economic and spiritual status in the society.
What We Do: We meet the needs of these diverse beneficiaries, we run a one-weekend event every month designed around developmental themes such as building confidence, public speaking, and self-esteem. We also provide one-on-one discussions with mentors, hold career talks, group discussions, and encourage leadership responsibilities and community service.
Economic Development and Self Sufficiency Intensive workshops for women and girls on how to obtain credit and access capital, how to start and expand a business and how to market and advertise effectively.
Transforming lives of vulnerable women and children in local communities a just world free from poverty where every child is safe, healthy, educated and every woman empowered.
Support teenage mothers and other vulnerable women to realize their dreams through training in skills that will enable them to be financially independent, as well as identifying and protecting needy children and giving them a chance to education, responsibly sharing our time, talents and treasures.
The NGO (JALI SISTERS) will offer the following services:Training ladies from Mathare slum on what to do when in an abusive relationship, children rights and women rights in Mathare. It’s sad to see how women are treated in marriage and painful to see young girls raped, used as sexual objects and infected with very bad sexually transmitted diseases just because of poverty and lack of a place to call home. This year, we are helping 28 teenage mothers to receive spiritual and economic empowerment through the F4 Model (Financial Freedom For Families model). We are sponsoring 2 girls from poor families to complete high school education and rescued 15 children who were being locked up in houses as their mothers went in search of manual labour to provide for the family.
When the project of jali sisters is properly implemented it will become a point of reference to States and Local government institutions and employers.
