You remember that Sisters Rising Worldwide (SRW) vision is to empower sisters worldwide to address root causes of injustice through innovative technology. We are FINALLY getting there!!! SRW has been working on a secure technology platform to distribute to Sisters which will finally and at long last address their needs.
Once built, the platform will enable Sisters to focus on systemic solutions and invest in sustainability and self-reliance. At long last they can share best practices, seek resources, post crises as they happen, i.e., outbreaks of infectious disease before it becomes endemic or women and children at immediate risk of being trafficked. Sisters Rising Worldwide remains a project partner for the Sisters from finding resources to reporting impact back to donors. The universe of Sisters will multiply their effectiveness exponentially as women, children and their communities begin to flourish.
The wireframe design is completed. Once coded and built, this new platform will allow sorting by programs, services, people, crisis alerts and have the ability to translate into 180 different languages. It will enable Sisters Rising Worldwide to communicate directly with Sisters seeking help as well as Sisters communicating with Sisters across the world! The wireframe was pulled together and paid for by generous, capable experts and donors inspired by the vision of Sisters Rising Worldwide.
Phase 2 is the writing of the technical architecture and business strategy. We have been blessed by interested, capable people who are donating one-half of what it will take to complete this phase. This second phase is scheduled to be completed mid-March.
Phase 3 is the actual building of the platform in code. This Phase will need the generosity of people inspired by the SRW Vision and Sisters work. We need financial help here. Because this platform will become globally known, SRW is offering naming rights for the platform itself for someone who is able to make a gift of $700,000.

SRW’s goal is to be self-sustaining within three years. The Sisters Rising Worldwide public website, where you are now will work in tandem with the secure platform for Sisters only. This public website offers people a way for everyone to participate in helping Sisters solve the systemic problems they face in all corners of the world. One SRW goal is to welcome one donor per sister (700,000) to give the cost of one latte a month– $5.00—and these funds will be distributed to Sisters on the ground who are doing the hard work of making the world a better place for all of us.
