Soroptimist International is celebrating 100 years, a milestone birthday such as 100 years deserves widespread recognition as Soroptimists from the South West Pacific join Soroptimists World Wide to celebrate our historic past, present and future. Join us as we celebrate our "Bright Past and Brilliant Future", the recurring theme for 2021.
For 100 years Soroptimists have delivered and continue to deliver grass roots projects which have had a positive impact. These projects have advocated for change, met changing needs, delivered in times of pandemics, war, conflict, and disasters, meeting diverse community needs, Soroptimists have remained forever resourceful for 100 years, our projects change the lives of women and girls.
Follow us over the next 12 months as we relive our Bright Past, and contemplate the Brilliant Future of Soroptimist International and the South West Pacific Federation. Our C100 Campaigns are designed so that all clubs across the Federation can be involved, we encourage club Friendship links to join together for the C100 Acts of Kindness, our C100 Plant 100 trees will have a strong climate change statement as we all embrace the work our foresisters did in saving the Redwoods. Join us in person as we celebrate in Sydney in May 2021, wear our beautiful SISWP Centennary brooch or bag charm with pride, our C100 Virtual Walk will unite Soroptimists across the globe as we walk to the SI Virtual Celebration in 2021, along the way we will visit past projects, stop at historic Soroptimists sites reliving our history as we travel, and registrations will raise funds for the SISWP Brighter Futures Fund, more about this fund to follow.
It promises to be a great year, opportunities not to be missed as we celebrate as sisters, showcasing our service and project work to the world.
