Educate, Empower and Enable Women to Achieve Their Goals

The Soroptimist mission is to educate, empower and enable women and girls. Therefore, in addition to the grants financed by the SIE Scholarship Funds, Unions and Clubs throughout the Federation award numerous scholarships and organise various mentoring programmes that empower women in their countries and communities to achieve their professional goals.
