“Women Helping Women … and Girls”
The mission of Soroptimists is to improve the lives of women and girls
through programs leading to social and economic empowerment –
in their local communities and around the world.
Why women and girls?
It’s true that living in poverty, facing discrimination and overcoming obstacles can affect both men and women. However, throughout history, in every country in the world, women and girls have faced additional obstacles and discrimination solely because of their gender.
To us, “Soroptimist” means “best for women” and we strive to be an organization of women at their best, helping other women to be their best. As a volunteer organization of women, we feel uniquely qualified to help other women and girls live their dreams.
Making a difference, one life at a time.
SIGNK members were privileged to have Jennifer, one of our Live Your Dream recipients, visit and talk about how the award changed her life. Her story is powerful. Through her shaky voice and tears, she shared her success story and she expressed her sincere gratitude for our Live Your Dream award program. She brought tears to every member. Jennifer’s visit made us remember why we do what we do — and that what we do does make a difference – one life at a time.
Live Your Dream Recipient, Jennifer, with Live Your Dream Chairperson, Wendy Arnhols.
