The Lil' Sista project
Empowered women empower women but we also empower the women of tomorrow -- young girls, or as with call them, the Lil’ Sistas. These young girls, the Lil' Sistas, they are girls today but they are the women of tomorrow and we at Empowered are trying our best to give them the hope, the encouragement and the guidance they need so that they can become strong empowered women.
The Lil’ Sistas Project is an outreach program we launched for underprivileged girls. Currently we have 76 Lil’ Sistas -- 50 from the Center of Hope, a recovery safe house for human trafficking survivors ages 13-20, and 26 from Holy Family Home, an orphanage and child protection home for girls ages 6-16.
CURRENT ACTIVITIES FOR THE LIL’ SISTAS:
Lil’ Pow Boxing Class -- Online
TFor the protection of our Lil' Sistas, we now host our Lil' Pow Boxing Class online. It was a hard adjustment for all but the awesomeness of hosting the classes online is that we get to combine ALL Lil' Sistas and train them together -- the Lil' Sistas from Holy Family Home and the Lil' Sistas from the Center of Hope. And, it that wasn't great enough, having one big massive crew to train and introduce to each other, Empowered Clubhouse has since hired one Lil' Sista as a Clubhouse Assistant, Juvy. Juvy has been helping assisting in coaching the online classes so desipte the challenges of quarantine life, we've been able to find much good in all this. AND... we host the classes bi-weekly, so the Lil' Sistas are all getting an extra dose of training, support and empowerment.
