We are proud to participate in the Soroptimist International of the Americas “Dream” Programs!
Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award
Did you know that in 1948, the United Nations declared basic education to be a fundamental human right? Despite that, 16 percent of the world’s population lacks basic literacy skills – two-thirds of them are women. Did you know that lack of education increases a woman’s chances of living in poverty, being affected by violence, becoming infected with HIV/AIDS and dying in childbirth? Find out how Soroptimist is tackling these and many other issues by providing support to women through the Live Your Dream Award.
