Great to meet up with our International Friendship Links again. Especially as the 3 October is Friendship Day. A real opportunity to share what we are doing and how we are doing it!
President Sandra lit a candle to celebrate Soroptimist Clubs throughout the world.
We share a common purpose – to make a difference to the lives of women and girls. For instance, SI Willimantic, Connecticut, USA has a fantastic way to raise awareness and involve businesses in stopping violence against women in their ‘I take a stand to stop violence against women’ campaign.
SI Blantyre, Malawi are funding and supporting the building of a library to help improve literacy and the development of IT skills at a local school. SI Milford Haven in Wales is helping keeping the beaches in Pembrokeshire clean with organised litter picking events. We also heard what is happening in South Africa, Scotland, Japan and Belgium.
We were delighted to welcome Bhaswati Biswas, SIGBI Friendship Link Coordinator from India.
