We refer to our projects as ‘Programme Action’ and this is the core of Soroptimism, the lifeblood of the organisation. It is the most important aspect of Soroptimists and should be the focus of all members.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. We adhere to the United Nations 5Ps (People, Prosperity, Planet, Peace, Partnerships) and the 3Es (Educate, Enable and Empower – see here for some examples) through the 3As (Awareness, Advocacy and Action), through which we aim to bring about significant improvements, opening up all sorts of opportunities for achievement to help women and girls be the best they can be through inspiring action and transforming lives.
