SI St. Augustine

Soroptimist International is a vibrant, dynamic organisation for today’s professional and business women.

SI St. Augustine was established in 1985, and was the first Club located East of Port-of-Spain.

SI St. Augustine began its work at the Women’s Prison soon after the Club was chartered, and at the time, was the first Club of the International body of Soroptimists to do so.

Our Project Courage has, in the past decades, transformed the lives of female inmates.

We have successfully lobbied for policy changes, such as more generous and flexible time with children, culminating in the ability of inmates who give birth having time to bond with  their children; we have provided training, for better lives post-incarceration, raised funds, visited, and more.

We are proud to see the number of organisations that have followed us in providing services to the women in the Prison.

We continue to provide support for the incarcerated women, in the true ideals of Soroptimism.
