What We Do

Soroptimist’s mission is to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world. In order to accomplish this goal, the organization administers several international programs. The organization’s major project is the Soroptimist Women’s Opportunity Awards, which assists women by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and job prospects.
