Over 80,000 Soroptimists in about 120 countries and territories volunteer time and contribute financial support to community–based and international projects that benefit women and girls. The name, Soroptimist, means “best for women,” and that’s what the organization strives to achieve.

Additional club level projects range from anti-trafficking awareness and victim support to Dress a Girl Around the World sewing projects. Members enjoy working together to make a difference in the community and positively impacting local women and girls.
