October is a special month for Soroptimists with two days that celebrate what we do and why we do it.
Celebrating Day of the Girl Child
With our desire to transform the lives of females around the world, 11th October as International Day of the Girl reminds us that our work is vital to provide a voice for those girls who do not have one.
This year with a theme of Girls Progress = Goals’ Progress: What counts for Girls, we concentrate not only on our awareness of the potential of the SDGs for girls, their families and their communities but also on the fact that data is our major way of ascertaining what progress we are making. Without data we limit “our ability to monitor and communicate the wellbeing and progress of half of humanity.”
Many Soroptimist Clubs in our Federation are involved in projects that seek to address basic needs. Below are examples of just a few of these projects.
