What We Do
Sister Connection creates opportunities for widows to become self-sufficient.
Since 2006, our partners have empowered thousands of women to provide for their family, and invest in their community.
Homebuilding & Support
Everyone needs a place to live and money for food and clothing. Our partners have built 1,800 homes and provided financial stability for thousands of women.
A job requires skills. Training programs at our Mt Hope campus equip widows with the tools they need to succeed in business.
Ability must be met with opportunity. We make small loans (average $150) to fund entrepreneurship. Our repayment rate is 95%.
3 years, 3 steps to financial independence
Our Burundian staff work with community leaders to identify widows in poverty capable of reaching financial independence through vocational training and micro-enterprise funding.
When you support a widow through in3, you will receive letters to hear her story and learn how you are impacting her family.
$1,500 pays for her needs and training through the three-year program. You can make a one-time donation, or spread it out as $500/year or $41.67/month.
Invest in sustainable development.
Our journey to sustainable development
Sister Connection was founded in 2006 to help widows rebuild their lives after decades of war. Civil conflict left a generation of widows and orphans without status and without support. We connected them to donors who rebuilt their homes and supported them financially.
Today, Sister Connection serves a new generation of widows. While the memory of war is fading, the economic prospects for widows and their children remain bleak. Our goal has shifted from the immediate needs of charity to a push for self-sufficiency and sustainable development.
