Do you have a story to tell? Club members Sue Williams, Sue Slocombe and Sandra Jowett did.
The money raised will support Empowering Girls in Nepal.
Their challenge was to write a short memoir, a reflection on childhood and of their early years.
We have already raised £270 toward the SIGBI Empowering Girls in Nepal project. You can donate on TheBigStory website but be sure to put Soroptimist in your name to ensure it goes to Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland’s joint project with Chorachori.
The stories are very different. They reflect that our experience of childhood can be very different. They will be published in the Autumn as part of the BIG STORY CHALLENGE.
Many girls and young women in Nepal are unable to access an education and training that will help take them out of poverty and give them a chance of a better life. The money we raise will help make a difference to their lives.
We are very proud of our three authors for taking the time to write and willingness to share their stories.
