SIGBI News Briefing – 1 October 2021

LAUNCH OF NEW INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT’S APPEAL – Soroptimist International President Elect, Maureen Maguire, who will become SI President in January 2022, is delighted to launch her International President’s Appeal, “Opening Doors to a Bright Future”.

The objectives of this appeal are to:

  • Provide access to education in all its forms for disadvantaged and marginalised women and girls.
  • Provide education to women and girls in a safe, friendly, and stimulating environment where there is equality of opportunity and support for all.
  • Develop mentoring programmes that encourage confidence, self-esteem and increase the participation of women and girls in society and in decision-making.
  • Increase access to information, educational resources, and services, to empower women and girls to make informed life-choices.

Projects will be established in all five Soroptimist Federations, with the launch project being in Cambodia, SI South West Pacific.

You can no longer donate to “Road to Equality”. All donations to the International President’s Appeal will be allocated to “Opening Doors to a Bright Future”.
