We Are Soroptimist.

A global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.

Providing women and girls with access to education is the most effective way to help them reach their full potential and live their dreams. When women and girls are educated, they have opportunity, choice and power to make healthy decisions for themselves and their families.
