Muslim Sisters' Leadership Institute
During the Muslim Sisters’ Leadership Institute, Indo-Caribbean and South Asian women, ages 14-23, developed their leadership skills as they explored how our community can achieve the physical, mental, spiritual, social and well being of women and girls. They went through a transformative process linking the personal to the political and exploring how we face unique challenges as women of color from immigrant families and how we can address key questions: how can we take charge of our bodies, our education, our environment, and our lives?
Young Women's Leadership Institute
Sister Circle gatherings, hosted by members of Jahajee Sisters, create spaces for Indo-Caribbean women to bond, share our stories, engage in dialogue about issues that are relevant and important to us, and explore ways to create positive change. With great food, amazing women and dynamic conversation, we build lasting relationships and strengthen our community. Learn more about our Sister Circle program here.
