How we do this
We foster those women with entrepreneurial ambitions, teach them skills, provide them a space to create and sell their wares, and the broader network of SisterWorks women supports them.
We firmly believe that ‘Work Empowers Women’. Therefore, rather than becoming beneficiaries, SisterWorks women become our business partners, and together we develop and sell marketable products with 50-75% of the profits going to individual Entrepreneurs and the remainder going back into supporting the broader group.
Why we do this
Ultimately, we do this to create a better future for Australian society.
Women with migrant, asylum seeker and refugee backgrounds are the community’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged newcomers. They face social isolation, domestic violence, long-term unemployment and dependence on government welfare.
We support women to support themselves.
