Establishment

The Angelic Ladies Society is a women-led non-profit organization in Kingston, Jamaica. It caters to the development of the most vulnerable girls through capacity building programs, workshops, life skill training sessions, mentorship, empowerment/spiritual talks, charitable deeds, life coaching, and process-oriented group therapy. The organization has existed since January 2009 and emerged as a response to an overwhelming lack of support for girls who sought good moral influence, parental guidance in the absence of a stable family structure, and empowered, intelligent, and successful role models. The organization desires to focus on counteracting the negative messages of society that flood and affect the most vulnerable and high-risk girls by providing them with accessible resources to lead successful, independent, and fulfilled God-fearing lives.

The organization was established out of the heart of Sara-Lou Morgan-Walker, the founder, who, as an educator in the Jamaican secondary school system, for a temporary season, had the experience of being approached constantly by young girls from varied socio-economic spheres who craved love, support, guidance and nurturing. On this premise, The Society was formed, with the sole purpose of providing an avenue that would meet the needs of young ladies across the parishes of Jamaica and, by extension, the Caribbean.

The organization curates capacity building programs that were designed to improve the social abilities, emotional well-being, and mental state of our girls. In the initial years, the organization was able to conduct a two-week summer workshop at the Wortley Girls Children Home under the theme “Becoming Me – Realizing my fullest Potential,” facilitating sessions on Career & Academic Empowerment; Self-Esteem; Personal Hygiene; Health & Fitness; Beauty, Skin & Hair Care; and Dining Etiquette.
