A global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.

Our focus is on education because educated women and girls are:

  • Less vulnerable to sex traffickers
  • More likely to leave a domestic violence situation and not return
  • Able to access healthcare
  • Less likely to live in poverty
  • Able to raise stronger, healthier families


Soroptimists are Philanthropists. Through our fundraising, we donate money to help women and girls, locally and around the world. Soroptimists are Activists, coordinating worldwide projects, such as the "Women's Opportunity Award" and bringing awareness to social injustices. Soroptimists are Optimists.
We hope you will join and partner with us to make the world a better place for women and girls!
