2023 sets many challenges after 90 years since the Swansea Soroptimists were formed in 1933
President Angela’s theme until April 2023 is “Reflect, Recruit and Retain” whilst still having fun at our events.
We will reflect on all the successes since Swansea Soroptimists were formed as the first club in Wales in 1933 and look to recruit new active members of club. We will continue to encourage and support young women and girls to reach their potential
We celebrated our 90th Anniversary with our popular Quiz Night and Raffle on Thursday 9th March at St Paul’s Parish Centre (SA2 9AR). Our Special guest was Regional President Sharon and we had another special guest! We raised £800 for the Turkey/Syrian earthquake victims.
At our September event in Sketty Parish Centre there was an opportunity to hear from a student who we financially assisted in her 10 months learning in Los Angeles.
The 16 days of Activism against Gender Based Violence runs from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, until 10 December, Human Rights Day.
We supported this Orange the World campaign and had an Orange event: a Pre Loved Clothing and Accessories sale on Saturday 26th November St Paul’s Parish Centre in Sketty. We raised funds for Maggie’s in Swansea and the RNLI and our Orange poster supported the campaign.

WHO ARE WE?
SI Swansea is an organisation open to all women who support the aims of the organisation Soroptimist International to Educate, Empower and Enable women and girls. In April 2022 we had 11 members but we need more active members. Soroptimists are women joining together to influence decision making and improve the lives of women and girls through action.
We want to help women and girls reach their potential, realise their ambitions and have an equal voice in creating strong and peaceful communities.
