Welcome to Susters4Life, a South African NGO dedicated to empowering and uplifting women.
Susters4Life was founded by the four Thompson sisters, Lesley, Reneé, Toni and Nashreen. The work began with ad-hoc community projects in Worcester and Laingsburg, with a focus on helping women in these rural communities.
We organised numerous projects around Mandela Day, Human Rights Day, Mother’s Day, Eid and Christmas, all of which we funded from our own pockets. As we became more involved in the lives of the local families, we realised just how widespread the need was for women’s empowerment and education.

Upholding Women’s Rights in South Africa

The burden on the state is growing and the cost of living is increasing monthly. We as a society need to take responsibility and create pockets of positivity and hope, to help our people rise above their challenges, and thrive.

Susters4Life officially became an NGO in 2017, and this formalised structure will give us the resources we need to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those we work with.
