Who we are and what we do
Soroptimist International is a truly International Organisation operating in 130 countries:
We work to support women and girls at International, national and local level
Working at the local level allows us autonomy over what we support and the ability to see and adjust the impact of our choices
Activities of Bedford Soroptimists include:
Discussion and debate about a wide variety of topics of local, national and international importance such as concerns related to violence against women, educational opportunity and the well-being of children and aging
Taking up matters at a local level e.g. lobbying MPs on issues of importance
Raising money for local, national and international charities
Running a housing scheme for women of limited means
Continuing our friendship links with other clubs including in the West Indies
