Soroptimist International is a worldwide organization for women in management and professions, working through service projects to advance human rights and the status of women.
The majority of Soroptimist's work to improve the lives of women and girls is done at the local club level. Clubs assess the needs of their communities and then undertake projects that will best fill those needs. Soroptimist clubs receive assistance in their volunteer efforts by participating locally in programs developed and sponsored by the Soroptimist organization. In addition, clubs work on other projects specific to their communities, such as educating women about health risks, providing skills-training to low-income women, and raising awareness about issues that affect women and girls. Communities rely on Soroptimist clubs to provide direct assistance to women and girls who might otherwise not receive the help they need.
