The Circle of Sisterhood Foundation is a mechanism by which all sorority women can stand together across affiliation, age, color, and creed to make a difference in the lives of millions of girls and women around the world.
Two thirds of all illiterate adults in the world are female, and not even seven percent of the world’s population has a college degree. Ultimately, more and more educated girls will mean stronger and healthier villages, communities, and entire countries. The Circle of Sisterhood Foundation will support entities that remove barriers to education for girls.
Since our founding in 2010, we’ve been able to support organizations working to remove barriers to education in 22 countries on 4 continents, including funding the construction of 15 school builds in five countries – Nicaragua, Malawi, Nepal, Senegal and Haiti.
Our Continuous Efforts
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.
