Women, Water and Leadership – Soroptimist International President’s Appeal 2017 – 2019



This project has been chosen as the new SI President’s Project for the 2017 – 2019 biennium. During this period Soroptimists from the four Federations will be united in their efforts to increase awareness of the vital role of women as equal partners at all levels of the water sector.  This project is particularly relevant since inclusiveness of women and sustainability are essential components of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).

Projects will be supported that educate, empower and enable women and girls to lead in water, and that embrace the UN SDG’s and the targets set out in SDG 6 (Water and Sanitation), SDG 4 (Education) and SDG 5 (Gender Equality).

The aim is to raise £350,000 over the two years and SI Chester members will be considering how we can contribute to this project.
