A multi-ethnic and multicultural international organization for and
by women.

Our focus is to promote the idea of our members supporting one another, by utilizing services and products offered within our network before considering external options.

Get to know us deeply

We motivate our members to prosper personally and collectively, to reach their full potential, in an atmosphere in which all are elevated in the process. We currently promote financial independence, and provide professional, personal, and physical support for our world-wide sisterhood through workshops, programs, challenges, via groups and one on one initiatives, all carried out on a volunteer basis by our sisters.

We are in the process of expanding our services in keeping with our three-pronged business model which is to provide: 1. A Secure Social Media Platform for Daily Connections; 2. Community Building and Support, Providing Resources to Meet all Needs, and 3. An Online Market Place for Members’ Businesses and Services, and SestraNow, LLC business Initiatives.

We believe that the time is NOW to transcend the divisiveness that we experience especially in today’s political and social climate, fueled by racism, sexism, homophobia, disability status, ageism, etc. The time is NOW to tap into our strengths, talents and abilities and form a network free of the obstacles perpetuated by the patriarchy. At the core we women are caring, passionate and nurturing. A woman’s nature is to build and thrive despite whatever comes her way. The time is NOW to promote a genuine sisterhood of prosperity, health, and love. Imagine a world where those values are paramount, rather than selfishness, greed, and power.

Message from the

After seeing the ecstatic reaction of runner-up Miss Nigeria when it was announced that the 2019 Miss Universe was Miss Jamaica, I was inspired to create SestraNow. Her response has left an indelible mark on me. It takes a special type of person to celebrate the achievements of someone else especially when she is your competition. That is the type of individual that we seek to join our network. Women have sometimes been labeled as catty, distrustful, and weak. There are a lot of us that need support whether it be emotional, physical, financial, etc. There are also many who have been blessed with access to resources that others have not. But no matter the case, everyone has something that she can bring to the table. Together, we can accomplish exponentially more than we ever could individually. By pooling our gifts, talents, and special abilities, we will create a solid, powerful, and effective structure that is based on cooperation rather than competition, service rather selfishness, grace rather than greed and sisterhood rather than solitude. SestraNow is the vehicle we use to celebrate, promote, and support women all over the world, assisting them to accomplish their dreams.
