Happy New Year!
The Power of Together
July 1, 2021 marked the beginning of a new year for Soroptimist International of Honolulu. Congratulations to President Lisa Broulik and the 2021-22 Board of Directors!
The Club theme for 2021-22 is "The Power of Together," which is the manifestation of 2 notions:
-First, it is nearly impossible to exaggerate the value of women coming together. There is a lot of "talk" about women's empowerment, but the best stories seem to be when women invest in women. Whether we're investing time, support, money, or more in one another; when women come together, everyone wins.
-Second, as we transition into our new lives "after COVID," it is a time to be together again and feel the power in our reconnections.
-Lisa Broulik, SI/Honolulu President
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.
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.
