IT'S COOL TO BE KIND
At Empowered, we firmly believe in the power of women empowering women, and that includes empowering the women of tomorrow – the young girls we fondly call the Lil' Sistas. These girls may be young today, but they are the future strong, independent, and empowered women of tomorrow. We are committed to providing them with hope, encouragement, guidance, and positive role models to help them grow into their full potential and embrace their strength. The Lil' Sistas Project is our heartfelt outreach program, launched in 2018 by Coach Amy. Originally sparked from her visit to the Holy Family Home Foundation in Makati, it expanded when she heard about the Center of Hope, a recovery safe house for human trafficking survivors created by Voice of the Free. Since then, we've mentored and coached over 300 underprivileged girls, empowering them to become fierce and resilient women.
Past events of the Lil' Sistas include:
100kms for the Lil' Sistas
Christmas Karaoke Party

A Lil’ Sistas Christmas Feast Operation: Christmas Cheer
Recently, we resumed in-person Lil' Pow Boxing sessions with the Lil' Sistas at Holy Family Home, bringing moments of laughter, growth, and bonding during our 3-4 hour sessions.
Our main focus now is launching Level Up, a skills set preparation program to equip them with vital life skills for a confident, independent future. If you'd like to support the success of Level Up, please reach out to Coach Amy at LilSistasProject@gmail.com. At Empowered, we are dedicated to shaping the future of these young girls, instilling them with courage, resilience, and the belief that they can achieve anything they set their minds to. The Lil' Sistas Project is a testament to the power of empowerment and how it can shape the lives of young girls, preparing them to become unstoppable forces of change and strength. Together, we create a powerful sisterhood, empowering the women of tomorrow and making a positive impact on their journey of empowerment and growth.
