Founded in 2012, Sisters United, LLC is a for profit business designed to promote a fun and trendy global brand of fashion, while at the same time, supporting certain non-profit causes, like Pros for Africa and St. Monica’s Girls Tailoring School in Gulu, Uganda.

Being moved by the plight of the many innocent children and young women who were left in the aftermath of the long war in Uganda, and having seen the children after visiting Gulu, Uganda, it became our mission to unite together and become “Sisters United” reaching across to Africa and “empowering woman one stitch at a time.”
Joseph Kony and the LRA (Lords Resistance Army) caused thousands to lose their lives and many more to suffer homelessness and a loss of hope and dignity.
These woman and children want sustainable, long term initiatives to become empowered to earn their own living and restore their dignity.
Sisters United distributes the handbags and goods made by the young women of Uganda and South Sudan, giving them jobs, hope and a chance to live meaningful lives with dignity.
