What we're about

When women support each other, incredible things happen. These meetups are for women looking to support, love and empower each other.

Have you ever hoped to be part of an organisation that sets out to make a positive impact on the world?
Would you like to develop, improve or gain leadership skills?
Are you looking for that group of sisters that are like minded, empowering and inspiring?
Or are you simply looking to gain some sense of fulfilment as you set out to help others?
Well then this may be the group for you!

We are hoping to form an unbreakable sisterhood bond between ourselves where we can share experiences, educate ourselves and each other on different areas, aspects and issues of life. Everyone has concerns, worries and fears and this group hopes to support, comfort and encourage each other by coming together and building supportive networks and connections to overcome challenges we are facing or may face.

We also hope to broaden our understanding on certain issues and explore different ways to fix them.
A shared experience from one person can uplift, empower and fuel the spirit of another. Not only do we hope to be hearers, but also doers, problem solvers, teachers and leaders of our nation. We aim to actively set up platforms and events to improve, tackle and raise awareness for some of the issues that will be discussed at these meetings. Our major focus is to build, provide or direct women to relevant support systems ranging from mental health issues, a broken heart, unemployment/employment issues or someone looking for a true friend. This help will come from women coming together to share experiences and directions to provide solutions to these issues. We are women coming to discuss issues and to support other women!
