Endo Sisters East Africa was initially established as a program of Gospel Preachers Church, Thika. In 2019 after being in existence for 5 years, Endo Sisters East Africa obtained its own separate registration and is now registered as a Foundation. GPC continues to support the Foundation.
We are a social advocacy organization conducting community awareness activities. We do this in support of the legal and natural rights of women living with endometriosis and associated menstrual disorders as a means to achieving social justice. Our philosophy is based on our Christian belief which is to keep hope alive! We encourage endometriosis warriors to keep their faith and hope in God. We believe that we are our sisters’ keeper and that we have a responsibility towards improving the landscape of endometriosis awareness, diagnosis and management as well as ensuring that the next generation of women are well informed, emotionally prepared and spiritually equipped to manage the effects of endometriosis. The Bible tells us that the woman with the issue of blood was miraculously healed by Jesus (Mark 5: 25-34). In this, we know that there is hope in Jesus Christ even when the pain, agony and horror that is called endometriosis threatens to rob a woman of her joy and happiness.
In terms of our regional East Africa focus, we are currently engaged in talks and exploring various collaboration opportunities with organizations in the East African region to help advance the agenda on endometriosis awareness.
