Through the wonders of modern technology, we were able to meet up with some of the members of our Friendship Link club, SI Gouda. It was great to have a catch-up and a lovely surprise for our club to welcome Di, a former member, to our meeting.
We discussed the projects our two clubs have been involved with, despite ongoing lockdowns in both The Netherlands and the UK. We were interested to learn about the Gouda club’s overseas project, which aims to enable girls in Pakistan to avoid child marriage, by helping them have access to education.
Both clubs are participating in the Soroptimist International tree planting project to celebrate 100 years of Soroptimism (2020 was our centenary). http://www.soroptimisteurope.org/100-years-soroptimist-international-a-bright-past-a-brilliant-future/
