– Sister Rosemary
Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe, was named one of Time 100’s most influential people in the world, is a true inspiration.
Sister Rosemary runs the Saint Monica Girls’ Tailoring Center in Uganda, which serves as a home and haven for women and girls who’ve been devastated by violence and displaced by war. According to Sewing Hope, the documentary film that tells the story of Sister Rosemary’s effort to restore the dignity of these young women and girls, the Saint Monica Girls’ Tailoring Center is:
…where a community of women learn to become self-reliant and change agents for peace and prosperity. Sister Rosemary has taught these brave girls to make their own clothes, grow their own food, learn a valuable trade, and show mercy to others that are less fortunate.
In 2002, Sister Rosemary co-founded Sisters United in order to sell the unique bags and accessories made by the women at the Saint Monica Girls’ Tailoring Center, thus providing them with a sustainable income.
