About our Club
Through our voluntary work we make a difference, locally, nationally and internationally. Programme Action reflects the vision and the mission of Soroptimist International. We are committed to a world where women and girls together achieve their potential, realise their aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong and peaceful communities worldwide.
Our goals are to ensure that women and girls:
- Enjoy equity and equality.
- Live in safe and healthy environments
- Have access to education
- Have leadership and practical skills.
We are delighted that this years Public Speaking completion was won by our own finalist Rebecca Ross from Castleknock Community College, who received an iPad and ¢500 for her school.
Each year to celebrate World Water Day, we agree to put coins in a jar each time we turn on a tap at home. This helps to highlight how much we use water and take it for granted here in Ireland. The proceeds are donated to a water project each year. This year we raised ¢155 which was presented to Jeremy Pelzcer Chairman of WaterAid.
We also take part each year in the mini marathon to raise funds or raise awareness of a project. For 2018 we are participating in aid of the Aware . This campaign is intended to raise awareness about the prevalence of male violence against women with the ribbon symbolising men giving up their arms.
Every year we host the President’s dinner in aid a charity chosen by the club. This April we have chosen Daisyhouse Housing Association. Which provides temporary accommodation to homeless women for 18 months were they can recover and feel safe and secure and in time move forward in their personal development and lives.
Every year we also support the Caring for Carers Friendship weekend and throughout the year we work on other projects chosen by the club.
Through Programme Action Dublin Soroptimists are helping these worthy causes but we receive so much back through our friendship and service.
