Soroptimist International Dumfries and Galloway

Soroptimist International of Dumfries and Galloway is part of a worldwide organisation of women, which is linked to the United Nations.

Welcome to the proposed club, Soroptimist International of Dumfries and Galloway

Welcome to the website of the proposed club Soroptimist International of Dumfries and Galloway.

For some time a number of Soroptimists in the south of Scotland have been working together to establish a club in the area.  They have held a number of meetings and drop in sessions and are now working with a small group of  ladies who are interested in making a difference to the lives of women and girls in the area, as well as nationally and globally..

The club will have a flexible format decided on by the members, meeting as and when it suits them and possibly involving several small clusters to allow for the geography of the area.  It will offer interested women the opportunity to meet other like minded women, make new friends and get involved in projects, practical action and advocacy which will  make a difference to the lives of women and girls.

There are already ten Soroptimist clubs which form Scotland South Region, so there is a lot of support and help available for this new club.  The existing clubs work on similar projects and meet together quarterly, to share information, ideas and support.

Although we are not able to meet together at the moment, the ladies have been keeping in contact electronically and are thinking about how they might want to get involved.
