THE SISTERHOOD



Our Motto

If there is righteousness in the heart,
there will be beauty in the character,
If there is beauty in the character,
there will be harmony in the family home.
If there is harmony in the home,
there will be order in the nation.
When there is order in the nation,
there will be peace in the world.
