What do Soroptimists do? Watch this video: https://youtu.be/V8QEpx7eyj8
Welcome to the website of Soroptimist International (SI) Middlesbrough. Our club consists of a group of 20 friendly, lively and energetic women from all walks of life and of all ages who work together using our various skills and talents to make a difference to the lives of others. We do this through awareness-raising, lobbying, practical help and fund-raising.
Beyond our own club, members value the global network of Soroptimist clubs giving opportunities to travel, meet like-minded women and share ideas across the world.
In recent years we have supported action on violence against women and girls and all forms of trafficking. In particular we have supported Barnardo’s SECOS (Sexual Exploitation of Children On the Streets) project. We balance serious activity with socialising and fun.
SI Middlesbrough has three Friendship Links – with SI Harrogate and District, SI Magdeburg, and SI Pune Metro East. Two of our members last year visited SI Pune Metro East where they saw some of the village projects supported by local Soroptimists.
We work hard to improve the lot of women and girls worldwide and we always managed to fuel our efforts with fun, food and friendship.
Our interests range across:
- Economic and Social Development
- Human Rights and the Status of Women
- International Goodwill and Understanding
