SI San Fernando



Soroptimist International of San Fernando was chartered on 23 November 1962 with 18 members.  At present the club has forty-four (44) members, two of whom are founder members.

Our ongoing project is Shangri La Soroptimist Retirement Home, founded in 1970. It is a safe and secure residence where senior citizens can find companionship, serenity and happiness in their later years.

International Women’s Day 2022

In commemoration of International Women’s Day 2022, each of the seven Soroptimist International clubs of Trinidad and Tobago produced a video addressing:

A Mother’s work is REAL. Mothering through the Pandemic.

Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias can’t exist isn’t enough.

In commemoration of International Women’s Day 2021, all six Soroptimist International Clubs of Trinidad and Tobago united to produce a series of videos featuring prominent local women who choose to challenge gender bias and inequality.

These women hail from different backgrounds and each shared their journey and determination to forge a gender-equal world.
