According to the Executive Director, I Care for Sisters Worldwide, Mrs. Patricia Nnanna, their aims include to assist and empower women, especially the downtrodden in developing economies of the world.

“Basically, the reason for forming this organization is to educate women and help women to end all forms of abuses targeted at the female folk.

“I have been doing this individually but I am hoping to extend it to Nigeria and worldwide, with the help of other partners and social enterprises,” she said.

'I Care for Sisters Worldwide', she said, was launched formally in Cypress Texas, United States of America a few months ago.

Mrs. Nnanna explained that their motto which is “connect, heal and empower” means that whenever there is any issue involving a woman, they rally round to find a solution.

“We come together, know your story, your struggle, talk about it find a solution by paying for such a sister to learn a skill, so our sister can be a financially independent woman,” she said.

Currently, she revealed that they have engaged some 30 women as inaugural beneficiaries and partnering with Portfilo9 Community on Facebook to help teach these ladies entrepreneurial skills and

“… After that we will help them with the resources to get funding to enable them start businesses,” she said.

Nnanna further beckoned on those interested in partnering with her on this initiative.

“We are joining the rest of our Sisters Worldwide to end the culture of silence to any form of abuse either as a child or a grown sister,” she said.

Stressing that they are encouraged to connect with sisters worldwide, “by telling our stories, showing love, healing together and empowering each other.”
