Want to Help?

Your donation helps more women and girls attain economic empowerment through education.

Our focus is on education because educated women and girls are:

less vulnerable to sex traffickers

more likely to leave a domestic violence situation and not return

more able to access healthcare

less likely to live in poverty

able to raise stronger, healthier families

Signature Project

Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award

Every year, Soroptimist distributes more than $2.9 million in education awards to over 2,000 women all over the world.

Over half of our Live Your Dream Awards recipients are survivors of domestic violence, trafficking or sexual assault. Nearly all of the women and families we serve have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, teen pregnancy, and drug or alcohol addiction. Live Your Dream Awards recipients may use the cash award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare, tuition and transportation.
