About SIGV

"Soroptimist International seeks to recognize the needs of people throughout the world; to initiate awareness, advocacy and action to improve the quality of life; to advance international understanding, goodwill, and peace; and to serve voluntarily using the diverse skills of its members in individual, group and cooperative endeavors."

Soroptimists are women of all ages, cultures and ethnic groups. Members represent a wide array of professions, including doctors, attorneys, teachers, chief executive officers, business owners and government officials. Soroptimists, who are leaders in their communities, believe that by joining with other women they can make the world a better place. Membership provides a number of material and intangible benefits for women wishing to use their time and talents in the service of other women. “I ask women to join Soroptimist not only for the experience, but because together we can achieve so much more for our communities.”

The word "Soroptimist" is translated to mean "Best for Women". Soroptimist International works to promote human rights for all, and to advance the status of women. Through Program of Service activities, members promote positive social change through Awareness, Advocacy and Action. There are almost 100,000 members in 120 countries worldwide. Soroptimists are women who use the special expertise and management skills developed in their working life to advance the status of women and
make the world a better place.


OUR MISSION: To improve the lives of women and children, in local communities and throughout the world. The organization's major service project is the Women's Opportunity Awards, which assists women by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and job prospects.
