The Soroptimist International Club of Poona was chartered with SIGBI in April 1991. Our first project was helping the Shanivar Wada School for Spastics started by one of our founder members. We now support Adult Spastics at SPACE Centre for Spastics.
Our members are women drawn from different professions like IT, Medicine, Engineering, Education, Industry, Management, Social Work, Scientific Research.
Our main thrust for project work has been in the area of Girls Education and Women’s Health in addition to taking up work in the SIGBI Quadrennium Project areas like AIDS awareness and Cancer screening. We have also taken up our national projects like ‘Fistful of Grain’ and ‘Green Canopy’ in the fields of Nutrition and Environment respectively.
