Your club’s participation in the Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards is a terrific way to make a BIG difference in the lives of women—and their families.
Although the awards address economic need and make a difference in a practical way, we know they also affect women in a personal way. Women who have received the award report an increase in self-confidence and self-esteem, and pride for being recognized for having the courage to change their lives.
Every year, more than $2.9 million in education grants are awarded to over 2,000 women, many of whom have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic violence, and/or substance use disorder.
