Women’s Health Conference

The Conference is aiming to address issues regarding the health and well-being of women. Out of everything that makes a woman a woman, the most important is her physiology. The unique gifts associated with being a woman, regardless of whether they are socialized or biological, include being strong enough to bear children, stable enough to balance a dozen roles at once, and nurturing enough to build a strong, healthy community.


The Volunteer Experience

I’ve been volunteering with ANNISAA since the end of 2016. I instantly felt welcomed by the staff and community members. Although I’m giving back to the community through volunteering, I really think by volunteering at Sistering, the community is giving so much more back to me. It’s been such an amazing and enjoyable experience that I wish more people could share it. ~ MAH NOOR

It meaned a lot to me to be a part of this, to be essentially improving people’s lives. If you want to volunteer, I’d say it’s really not a big time commitment and you can really make a big difference to somebody’s life. One of the benefits that I got out of it is seeing a change in our younger volunteers. To see somebody be more comfortable with who they are around other people is a really positive experience for me. ~ SOUMIA

Volunteering with ANNISAA has given me the opportunity to assit pne of the most vulnerable groups of citizens in our society. Being able to attend workshops and witness the impact is an expeirence that I will never forget and it will definetely continue to impassion me throught my life. ~ BEENA
