The Colour Sisterhood
Placing Value on Humanity
The Colour Sisterhood is a company of everyday women, who desire to make a difference & make the world a better place. The heart of The Colour Sisterhood is that every woman can find an important & critical level of partnership.
2017 Strategic Focus
In 2017 our strategic focus is on the refugee crisis created by the violence and war in the Middle East.
We are partnering with organisations to respond in various w across the stages of a refugee’s journey.
We may not personally be found on the front lines but we can extend our efforts through partnership and have an impact through enabling the provision of emergency relief, safety and education for children in camps or informal settlements, support for those facing the task of rebuilding, and acting and advocating for a spirit of “welcome” to those arriving on our shores.
We have a range of projects you can connect with.
The 500Project launched in 2012 and continues to bring in resource to our partner organisations working in the field. Hundreds of women have contributed to this project so far, bringing in funds they have raised in their tins or through fundraising ideas, which have sparked generosity in friends, families and neighbourhoods.
Your involvement can bring light into darkness, peace to conflict & hope to the hopeless by simply gathering together and contributing to a ‘collective strategy’. It may or may not be a huge amount to you, but to countless others less fortunate, it can dramatically change their lives.

‘The Whisper’ is personal. It whispers “be found” - be found in His love, be found in His wisdom and goodness, be found in His peace and purpose. Be found so that others may find hope through you.
“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colours. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this. I’m putting you on a light stand, now shine. Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.”
– Matthew 5:14-16 (The Message – paraphrased)
Defined by genuine empathy, the influence of this host of world-changers is being felt in local and global contexts – from endeavours that bring care to the fragile in local communities, through to the global issues of human trafficking and poverty.
At the core of sisterhood is a message of value, and a genuine desire to ‘unite in friendship and cause’ in order to bring hope where hope has been lost.
The spirit of sisterhood is seen and felt in the fervent prayer of thousands of women who faithfully uphold nations where injustice and darkness rage out of control. It is seen and felt in young women being inspired by the wisdom and grace of their mothers and the women ahead of them in this journey of life. It is seen and felt in the relentless networking of everyday girls in their local neighbourhoods and in places of influence as they raise awareness and find solutions for the suffering, forgotten and abused of this world.
There are many pages and chapters within the story of god’s daughters on the earth, and as the ‘i am sisterhood’ declaration states, we find ourselves in our own ‘here and now’ with more pages yet to be written and experienced.

I asked [my cute grandbaby Willow Mae] recently, “Hey Willow? Do you love Jesus?” She never looked up from her colouring book, but she answered, “Oh, He’s a whole new world”. Four year olds are hilarious, but there was truth in her childlike response.
