Spring 2018 Trek to Senegal
Circle of Sisterhood is a non-profit organization founded and powered by sorority women. Our mission is to raise financial resources to help remove barriers to education for girls and women facing poverty and oppression.
This March, we are sending a group of fourteen Georgia Tech sorority women and two advisors to Senegal, Africa to build a school in a rural village where 50% of the students will be girls. The trip will take place over Spring Break and participants will work with buildOn to break ground on a new school, as well as be fully immersed in the Senegalese culture.
Our goal is to raise $40,000 by March 2018 to support both the school build and trek participants.
Please support women's education by donating through our Crowdrise page or participating in our on-campus fundraisers.

Circle of Sisterhood Week
A yearly event, Circle of Sisterhood Week featured small fundraisers and events to raise awareness about the importance of women's education and provide opportunities to donate to the cause. This year, the week featured a viewing session of Girl Rising, which is a documentary showing the stories of nine girls who overcome great obstacles to obtain an education and escape the cycle of poverty and oppression.
Individual Chapter Fundraisers
Along with community wide efforts, individual Chapters have been fundraising! For example, the sisters of Phi Mu sold delicious iced coffee outside their house on Ferst Drive to students between classes and donated their profits to Circle of Sisterhood.
Throughout the semester, Chapters member volunteer to bake and sell baked goods to the Georgia Tech community on Tech Walkway.
Day Two of Fall Formal Recruitment was "Philanthropy Day" where potential new members were first introduced to Circle of Sisterhood and its mission. Throughout the day, each house also introduced their personal philanthropy and showed how service is a shared core value among our Chapters. Every woman who participated in formal recruitment donated $5 as part of the registration fee.
