    are running as we speak!
    Every day, 35,000 Soroptimists across Europe, Africa and the Middle East
    work on concrete projects focused on education, empowerment,
    and the creation of enabling opportunities to improve the
    lives and status of women and girls.

    have raised € 7,485,850 for 2,889 different projects that have directly
    benefitted 1,261,322 women and girls.
    This demonstrates that small scale projects, together, can have
    a huge impact on improving the lives of women and girls.
