Our Causes

A-Sisterhood is a fundraising vehicle which has donated - and continues to donate -  to many worthwhile causes. We've listed some here so that you can see what we do...and you can also follow us on facebook and instagram to find out what we are up to.

Since 2016, we have been supporting the incredible and inspirational Stop Acid Attacks team in India which campaigns for better laws to deal with the issue, imprisonment for perpetrators and justice for victims. The majority of acid attack victims in India are women. The charity provides a safe house for survivors near Delhi’s main hospitals, funds treatment and runs a chain of cafes called Sheroes Hangout in Agra, Lucknow and Delhi which employ survivors not only giving them a job and a purpose in life, but also an opportunity to re-integrate in to society after such a devastating crime.

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a practice originating from Africa, Asia and the Middle East and involves the cutting of female genitalia for non-medical reasons.

The practice is not uncommon in the UK within communities originating from these parts of the world. It can lead to serious health issues including complications in childbirth, increased risk of HIV and AIDS, uterus, vaginal and pelvic infections, sexual disfunction, severe pain, shock and trauma and in some cases, death.

The Black Mambas are South Africa’s first all-female anti-poaching unit, and they operate on the front line of the Balule coalition of private game reserves on the western border of the world famous Kruger National Park. We are inspired by the vision of this charity, not only in its protection of animals but in its promotion of the female in to traditionally male roles. The Mambas are looked up to by the young women in their villages as heroes with many young girls wanting to be black mambas when they ‘grow up’. 

Support this cause

Llamau is a Cardiff based homeless charity which believes no vulnerable woman should ever have to experience living on the streets. Their mission is to eradicate homelessness for young people and vulnerable women.

Welsh Women’s Aid is a feminist organisation, our values are founded on commitments to human rights, anti-discrimination and freedom from oppression. We believe the evidence that violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence is based on gender inequality, a cause and consequence of the unequal position of women and girls in society, a violation of human rights, and is entirely preventable.

We have supported Daughters of Thailand which aims to empower, educate and inspire young women and girls to break the cycle of poverty and sex trafficking in Thailand. To be able to help an international charity which is working towards the end of sex trafficking has been one of our aims for some time. We are truly delighted to make a donation to their incredible work this month. What an amazing organisation!


For more than 45 years, My Harbour in the north east of England has provided assistance to families and individuals affected by domestic abuse. Statistics show that domestic abuse affects a quarter of all women at some time in their lives, regardless of age, social class, race, disability, sexual orientation or lifestyle. The visible consequences of this are obvious to see but the hidden consequences are often underestimated ~ isolation, loss of confidence, fear and despair.

Annually, we donate bras and other underwear to the Scottish charity Smalls For All which gifts underwear to women and girls across the world.The collection is made at the Bring A Bra Ball in association with Miss Universe Great Britain.

Tomorrow's Women is charity for women, run by women, offering support with a range of issues including domestic abuse, mental health, substance misuse, wellbeing & confidence, and social isolation.

Threshold DAS is an organisation in Llanelli committed to the elimination of violence and abuse of women, men, children and young people and those who are perpetrators through effecting political, cultural, and social change.

We are delighted to support Wildlife SOS in their work to rehabilitate the Kalandar communities (originally gypsy communities with a highly nomadic lifestyle were famous for their mastery over animals) through education and an alternative livelihood program as an extension of the dancing bear rescue project. By empowering them to earn incomes (through dignified and legal means) and improve their living standards, we had shown our commitment to providing them a life of quality. Our money goes towards helping Kalendar women to accept alternate means of earning which has contributed towards pulling them out of the regressive cycle of poverty, illiteracy, child marriages and exploitation.

We sponsor the education of a little girl called Manvi at Mother Miracle School in Rishikesh, India. The incredible organisation provides charitable English and computer education, nutrition, healthcare, and humanitarian service to underprivileged children and adults regardless of creed, race, religion, or caste. 

On International Women's Day 2024, A-Sisterhood sponsored a special award ceremony at Sakhi For Girls Education which helps girls and women in the slums of Mumbai to create better lives for themselves and their families through learning. It was a truly joyous occasion where every learner received a medal, a saree and food supplies for their family. Those who have excelled in their learning through the year also won special awards for their achievements. What a beautiful experience it was - congratulations all and in particular Aarti - the superwoman behind it all.

On International Women’s Day, we made a pledge that #wherewegowegive. It’s not a promise but it is an intention to contribute wherever we find ourselves in the world. On a recent trip to Guinea Bissau, West Africa, we were privileged to meet with Muna – the founder of the Ana Pereira Foundation that supports women and girls. The woman in question is phenomenal – a lawyer by profession – but her passion for supporting the female cause has lead her to create a foundation which tackles gender based violence and female genital mutilation. Muna told us that 42% of women and girls in Guinea Bissau view a beating as normal. She explained that despite a law being passed against FGM in 2011, there are areas in the country where more than 90% of girls are cut – many as babies. She is tackling these beliefs and societal norms – and it’s brave and often isolating work. She told us of a five-year-old child in intensive care fighting for her life after an FGM procedure gone wrong. We’re helping as best we can. Mirla, Miss Guinea Bissau (pictured) has offered her support to raise awareness of her plight; we have contacts in the healthcare system there who will try to advance her case so that she can receive specialist medical treatment abroad and A-Sisterhood is making a donation to help fund her care. Since our meeting which lead to the asking of the right questions to the right people, the little girl has been evacuated to Portugal to undergo speacialist treatment. That warms our hearts of course - but still so much work is to be done.
