Now that I’ve achieved my dream of graduating from college I am able to devote my time to one of my greatest passions: empowering impoverished women. Years ago I started this site to inspire and empower all who visited using my story and the stories of others whom I’ve encountered. As a woman currently living in poverty, I have experienced the many challenges faced by millions of women around the world. Poverty is like a disease. Its effects remain with you even if you’ve managed to escape it; you always fear the possibility of returning to it.
“SiSy’s Here…” (pronounced “sissy”, as in SISTER) is the community outreach component of the Sincerely Syreeta brand.
The first project we’ve launched (summer 2012) is affectionately titled the W.H.E.W! Project (Women’s Healing & Empowerment Workshops). WHEW! was conceived with the belief that the impoverished woman’s best chances of succeeding in attaining her goals for love, education, career, family, spirituality, self-esteem and health are best achieved when working together with other women within her community to support one another. While we find community organizations and social services to be extremely critical to the impoverished woman’s success, it is ultimately a strong support system that will greatly influence the fulfillment of her dreams.
SiSy seeks to support the evolution of the impoverished woman into the empowered woman as she attempts to balance her many responsibilities while managing to come up for a little air and letting a “WHEW!” escape her lips.
Please keep an eye out for this developing project! If you’re interested in volunteering, facilitating a workshop, providing product donations or sponsorship, please contact us for further information.
