December 2019 Soroptimist News

The December 2019 issue of Soroptimist News is out now. You can view it as a Page-Turner for PCs or download the App for Mobile Devices.

This issue gives all the news from the SIGBI Bournemouth 2019 Conference and details of the new SIGBI Project, Empowering Girls in Nepal, which was launched at the Conference.

The link to the Page-Turner is below. Some hints on using it are shown on the opening screen. If you roll the cursor over the icons in the top toolbar, the meaning of the symbols will be displayed. We recommend that you select “Single Page” plus “Fill Page” from these icons, for best viewing on screen. Use the arrows at either side to move to the next or previous page, and the arrow at the bottom to scroll downwards.

The links to download the App for Apple or for Android phones are also below. Select the one that you need for your device (you need to be viewing this article on the device in question) and follow the instructions to install the App. You can also search for “Soroptimist News” in Google Play or iTunes.

If you have already downloaded the App for a previous issue, then the new issue will be available from within the App. You will have received a notification that it is now available.

Happy reading. If you do have any problems then please contact
