We dream of a world where women and girls have the resources and opportunities they need to reach their full potential, live free from violence, and of course, live their dreams. Our mission is to provide women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment. Do you want to get involved? There are many ways to support including taking a trip, donating, or volunteering your time locally. Join us.

What We Do Every year, Soroptimist distributes more than $ million in education grants to about 1, women all over the world. Over half of our Live Your Dream Awards recipients are survivors of domestic violence, trafficking or sexual all of the women and families we serve have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, teen pregnancy, and drug or alcohol addiction.   Volunteering abroad is the opposite of “getting away.” It’s grounded, it’s real, and it connects you to the world we live in. It might make you question your values and direction in life. It will almost certainly make you feel very lucky. Volunteering can be equal parts exhausting, depressing, inspiring, and life changing.

In addition to visiting our office, the book, “ How to Live Your Dream of Volunteering Overseas,” can be a good starting resource for learning more about placement programs and other volunteer opportunities.   Returning home, it can seem like your life volunteering abroad was only a dream. One day you're hanging out on your porch watching a monkey run off into the bush, two days later you’re sitting at a coffee shop catching up with old friends and drinking lattes. There is a lot to process as you think over your experiences.
