On September 21, 2021, Soroptimist International kicked off the worldwide 100th Anniversary celebrations with a candle lighting ceremony hosted by Founder Region over Zoom.  It was fitting for Founder Region to be the first to light candles on behalf of the SI clubs worldwide and make wishes for a brilliant future for our organization for the next 100 years.

Women at their best, working to help other women to be their best

Soroptimist, loosely translated from Latin, means best for women.

SIH is committed to improving the lives of women and girls in Hawaii

through economic empowerment, elimination of violence and gender equality.

Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women
and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment. Soroptimist was formed in 1921 in Oakland, California, at a time when women were not permitted to join service organizations.

 

SIH is a part of the Founder Region of Soroptimist International of the Americas,

one of five federations that make up Soroptimist International,

which now has over 75,000 club members in 122 countries.

Making A Difference Thru Fundraising, Awards & Service

SIH gives thousands of dollars in cash awards annually to women who are the main support for their family and are working to improve their economic status through education.  Additionally, we grant funds to young women in high school in recognition for their community service and conduct and support programs for empowerment, education and benefit of young women.

SIH also offers Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls and conducts local service projects that benefit our local community and support other charitable organizations with like-minded missions.
