Donate To SISTAWorks
SISTAWorks wants to see more of Ghana's adolescent village girls through high school, instead of languishing as menial laborers in city markets and otherwise. Empowering these young women is an essential step in breaking the cycle of poverty in rural African communities.
We are currently in the process of raising funds to continue supporting the girls that are currently in the program, and to expand the program to support at least 25 more girls. To this end, we ask for your assistance so that we may pay school fees and purchase supplies for the neediest girls in Ghana's northern region. The total to provide one girl with school fees and supplies can range from approximately $250-$450 per year, depending on their grade level. Even the smallest contributions can make a big difference.
Please give by clicking the DONATE button to make a secure tax-deductible contribution.
Or, if you prefer, you can send a check made payable to "SISTA Works" to:

New Orleans, LA 70116
Donors contributing $300 or more are eligible for the SISTA Scholar Match Program. In this case, the donor will be provided with the student's photo, profile and correspondence information. This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a direct, personal and long-term relationship with a student from a very rich cultural background. Donors in this program are required to commit to sponsoring the student with a minimum $300 per year gift, until she graduates from secondary school (3-4 years).
