Club Members are split into three teams around the Soroptimist International Programme Objectives to provide focus for the Club’s projects which Soroptimists call “Programme Action“. The three teams are Peace, People and Planet. See below and also click here to find out more sigbi.org/st-albans/about-our-club/project-teams
As well as Programme Action Teams, the Club has a “Planning Team”, which is how the Club’s Executive is now known because that is what it does in the main. To see who is on the Club Planning/Exec committee for the coming year click here https://sigbi.org/st-albans/about-our-club/club-officers
There is always so much we want to do, meeting as a Club, having some fun and working together on with projects which will benefit the charities we support in our local Community and internationally with Soroptimists worldwide.
Soroptimist International, the worldwide organisation of which we are a part, was founded to make a difference to Women and Girls worldwide. Our Club has teams working on projects and activities linked to 3 of the United Nations Sustainable Development areas –
People Team – projects covering learning opportunities/education and wellbeing/health
Planet Team – projects relating to sustainability and the environment
Peace Team – projects to end violence against women and provide support.
During the year Club Members across the three teams will continue to support the St Albans and Hertsmere Women’s Refuge, the Steve Sinnott Foundation Period Poverty Project and other charities.
