Help Change Lives

Making a positive impact in the lives of others.

Your contribution will go directly towards providing women with the tools and resources they need to overcome trauma, rise up, and effect change. With your support, we can offer trauma-informed programs, training sessions, and leadership development opportunities that will help women break through barriers and achieve their full potential. We believe that every woman has the power to effect change in her community and in the world.

We are a nonprofit organization committed to working with women from the African diaspora to acknowledge past trauma, embrace healing, build connections, and create systems and supports to effect change in our global and local communities.

From isolation to unity: Anolee Sisters’ impactful initiatives.

Story by Mary’s Pence

Anole Sisters works with women in the Oromo diaspora to acknowledge past trauma, embrace healing, and build connections to create change within their community. Anolee Sisters prevents social isolation among Oromo women by creating community, offering counseling groups,  encouraging communication, and providing training and one-on-one support.

Anole Sisters presented their organization to The Woman’s Club of Minneapolis members to broaden their connections. They also prepared  traditional Eastern African food and shared a beautiful coffee ceremony with the attendants.”
