What We Do

Soroptimist Mission Statement (refined 2018)

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

Soroptimist Peterborough’s Educational Award Applications/Programs

We work to support women and girls dealing with homelessness, domestic violence, human trafficking, poverty, learning disabilities, and outcomes of war and natural disaster. We are also interested in ways to create strong self-esteem and positive body image for young women, and realize that part of that may include educational initiatives for young men.

SI Peterborough develops and coordinates fundraising to support community and global initiatives that are aligned with our Soroptimist mission. We rely on the generosity and support of our Peterborough community as well as friends and family far and wide.  A maximum of 10% of any fundraising may be used for administrative requirements according to our current club guidelines.
