Soroptimist International is a worldwide organization for professional women who work through service projects to advance the status of women and human rights for all. We are a global voice for women through awareness, advocacy and action. The organization was founded in 1921 by a group of 80 women in Alameda County, California. They chose their name from two Latin words meaning "best for women".
Soroptimist members belong to local clubs, which determine the focus of volunteer work to their communities. Our club is Soroptimist International of North San Mateo County and we focus on issues such as domestic violence, poverty, self-esteem, addiction, literacy, and other challenges that today’s women and girls are facing.
