SI President 2022-2023, Maureen Maguire calls for the generosity of our five Federations to support “Opening Doors to a Bright Future”.
“Opening Doors to a Bright Future”, is the Soroptimist International (SI) President’s Appeal, 2021-2023, officially launching 1 October 2021. Headed by SI President-Elect Maureen Maguire, who takes up her role as President in January 2022, the Appeal, now part of the broader, recently established Soroptimist International Foundation (*), springs from the learnings and success of many of the SI Appeals that have gone before; uniting Soroptimists, Clubs, Unions and the five Federations, with the aim of delivering tangible benefits to some of the world’s most marginalised women, girls, and their communities. With plans to establish Appeal projects in each of the five Soroptimist Federations, the launch project will take place within the Federation of the South West Pacific, in the South East Asia Nation of Cambodia.
Building on a tangible thread running through the very heart of Soroptimist work, “Opening Doors to a Bright Future” will cement the Soroptimist belief and commitment to Education throughout the life-course, and its immense power and fundamental role as a driver for sustainable development, peace, and equality. Investing in girls’ education brings high rewards, breaking cycles of poverty and aiding economic growth. Education empowers women, girls, and their communities, delivering skills and knowledge, whilst increasing confidence. Enabling women and girls to make informed decisions affecting their future wellbeing, health, participation, and quality of life.
