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.
In celebration of SI’s Centenary, on Sunday, July 25, 2021, SITT published a 24-page newspaper supplement with the Guardian Newspaper, Trinidad.
Here’s our full-page editorial…
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.

We continue to make a difference in the lives of women and girls through programmes that educate, empower and enable.
Recent ones include:
Health Outreach in Outlying Areas
Endometriosis Educational Seminars for Girls
Life Skills Parenting Workshops for Autistic Children
Finding Your Purpose/Passion Seminar for Girls
Assistance to disabled university student
In order to achieve our programme work, two main annual fundraisers are held – a golf tournament and a luncheon. San Fernando Soroptimists keep the ‘fun’ in fund-raising, and enjoy celebrating significant milestones with members of our own, and other clubs.
