A Bright Past - Soroptimists Celebrate 100 Years

How pleasing it is to know that in another year's time Soroptimist will have completed 100 years of service. What an amazingly varied journey it has been grown from an idea when women sought their space in the world – outside the home and hearth responsibilities. 100 years later Soroptimists have emerged in the forefront in their communities, countries and on the world platform they have a voice of their own. No wonder the celebrations have been christened BRIGHT PAST BRILLIANT FUTURE. Soroptimist International showcases the best of women worldwide. Its presence makes a difference in the lives of women and girls no matter to which community they belong. It is humbling to be a part of this organization that has delivered so much for the empowerment of women. An organization that advocates for the principles of equality as spelt out in the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action.
The Brilliant Future lies Ahead.
SI Pune Metro East is privileged to be part of Soroptimist International

SIGBI 85th Federation Conference - Bournemouth 2019

The 85th SIGBI Federation Conference was held at the Bournemouth International Conference Centre from 24th to 26th October 2019. The theme for 2018 - 19 was "Think on it" which focuses on our own wellbeing and the mental health of the women and girls we support. Many women and girls experience adverse life experiences, for example, as a result of domestic violence, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, imprisonment and trafficking or have mental health issues related to anorexia, self-harm, post-natal depression or dementia. Clubs have been challenged throughout 2018 - 19 to improve their own mental health and to raise awareness of the wellbeing and mental health of the women and girls we support. The Conference speakers exemplified this theme through their own experiences of mental health issues or through their work in supporting the wellbeing of others.
