About SI Malta

Welcome to the website of Soroptimist International of Malta.

SI Malta was chartered on the 23rd October 1993, our Founder Member being Leyla Pappalettera and our first President being Janatha Stubbs.

We form part of a worldwide organization that works in particular to further the interests of women and children.  SI Malta is part of the federation of SIGBI (Soroptimist International of Great Britain and Ireland).

Our members are Professional Women from different strata of society who lend their expertise to the Club for the benefit of others.  Together we believe in “Making That Difference” through the three E’s: Educate, Empower, Enable.  Over the years we have contributed to the local and foreign scenes in order to further these values especially with those who are less fortunate.
