Federation Projects PDF Print
Soroptimist Projects
Every two years, clubs have the opportunity to put forward a proposal for a new Federation Project. Members vote to accept a particular project at the biennial Conference of Clubs. Once accepted as a Federation Project, funds are raised by clubs throughout the Federation and the project is overseen by Soroptimist members.

Sanctuary: Shelter for Women

The projects aims to provide shelter to the most vulnerable in our community especially women and children who have been the victims of domestic violence and natural disasters and for whom are often the last to receive care and attention.
These shelers as they are built will also provide professional help in the way of counsellors, psychologists, medical personnel, caregivers, skills trainers and other necessary services as deemed based on the needs of the women at the time.
