About Us

Sister Sanctuary originated in Cayo, Belize in Central America. We witnessed the economic and social disparities and wanted to help rebuild a much stronger and empowered community.


We are a program affiliated with an NGO named Wajenzi. Wajenzi (meaning "The Builders" in Swahili) is an organization that aims to build up communities with a focus on holistic health. Since we shared the same goals, we decided to join forces to make a joint impact.


We are rebuilding one community at a time with the power of sisterhood. We provide counseling services, education, community and resources to women in underserved communities. To learn more, visit our What We Do page. We plan to expand our reach internationally as we continue to positively impact our communities.

Jen's Health Hut

This program provides a variety of free fitness classes to the community. Jen's Health Hut provides healthy eating counseling and better ways to cook. We help the community work on a mindset change by learning what the food that we eat does to our bodies. This helps people make better choices about what they eat, since they now understand the impact.

Cayo Soup Kitchen

Cayo Soup Kitchen is another one of our programs. This one is designed to not only provide food for those that do not have or do not have enough, but also introduce healthier options to help slowly change the common Belizean diet that includes an enormous amount of starch.  We add vegetables and fruit to each meal, something that is not common in this community.  Diabetes is a common disease in this society, and we aim to help one family at a time learn how to eat to live healthy.
