Lifted Strong Community Organization (LSCO) works with vulnerable women who have been affected by HIV/AIDS to enable, strengthen, and provide them with the knowledge and resources to become self sufficient, independently care for their children, and be able to influence others in their communities.


With the help of local volunteers, LISCO holds daily educational workshops for local women, provides surrounding rural communities with medication and nutritional assistance, and provides a space for women to create and sell their own jewelry and clothing!




Thank you to everyone who came to support our "Shop For a Cause" with Athleta in Flatiron, NYC. 

Shoppers received 20% off their purchase while learning about Oyana's mission. Proceeds were donated to our work in Tanzania! 

Oyana International has partnered with the talented women of LISCO to produce our reusable and eco friendly Period Packs!

Our Oyana Women’s Health and Empowerment curriculum is taught by international volunteers at the Lifted Strong Community Organization

Donations will go directly to the women of LISCO for the production and distribution of Oyana International Period Packs!
