MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO ANOTHER SISTA
“Be the change you want to see in the world” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
The spirit of The Sista Code is to uplift, inspire and support other women, including our most vulnerable sistas, those who have escaped a violent relationship and must start their lives again. As such, we have established the registered charity, ‘Got Your Back Sista.’
Currently based in NSW, we work directly with domestic violence services and refuges, by referral only, to provide:
1. BEGIN AGAIN PROGRAM:
Helping women and children, moving from a refuge to independent living, setup a safe home by providing furniture, white goods and household items, plus food and personal care items.
2. RISE UP AND THRIVE PROGRAM:
This program aims to help women who have escaped domestic violence gain the confidence, support and skills they need to be happy, obtain employment and thrive.
The Rise Up and Thrive program comprises workshops, mentoring, reskilling (if needed), work experience and employment opportunities for participants.
Unfortunately, domestic violence is prevalent in our country and the single biggest driver of women in to poverty, which in turn has a significant impact on their well-being, health and happiness.
SUPPORTED BY AURIZON COMMUNITY
Our vision is to see women and their children happy, thriving and living independently after escaping the trauma of domestic violence
