A social media platform for women across the continents named, Sisterhood Global, has been launched. The platform is aimed at tackling global problems associated with women through effective use of the media.

Its universal approach to solving the plights of women in the world has continued to receive positive responses globally.

At a media briefing the visioner and founder of the group, Nonnie Roberson, explained that the group had kick-started the global project three months ago under the name Sisterhood Africa, but had to rebrand after it had gathered over three million active members and facebook decided to shut the page down.

She said no explanation was given by facebook for doing so, but expressed optimism that the group will continually rise above gender issues by progressively rebranding and refocusing their targets.

She said: “Having tested the popularity of the group, it decided to expand its scope from Africa in order to accommodate more women globally, hence the new name – Sisterhood Global.”

Expressing her joy over the responses so far, Roberson said, “about three months ago, it was impressed in my heart to set up a platform, where women can come together, pray together, love each other, receive counsels, express how they feel inside, encourage each other and get solutions to their problems with abounding testimonies.”

She continued, “within a short while, it grew to over three million active members, but for reasons best known to Facebook, and without any prior notice, the group was taken down. Indeed, Sisterhood Africa, now Sisterhood Global was a house of solutions and testimonies. It was a place of solace for many women in Africa, and round the world, great testimonies were also shared.”

Giving assurance on the unyielding zeal of the group, Roberson said, “going forward, with full assurance that this move of God cannot be stopped, and the gates of hell cannot prevail against the church of God, we have launched Sisterhood Global. This is going to be the first time that women of faith would be building their own social network.”
