Soroptimist powers LiveYourDream.org as a way to expand its ability to serve the world's most vulnerable women and girls. 


What we’ve accomplished:


Soroptimist members in 20 countries and territories participate in the Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for WomenDream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls; and local projects tailored to meet the community needs of women and girls.


In late 2016, Caitlyn Dudek, Michelle Jaramillo and Twyla Dixon were selected to receive thousands in grant money. These awards were announced at the Soroptimist of Visalia Annual Awards Dinner February 7, 2016.


Soroptimist Visalia improved the lives of these women by providing cash awards allowing them to pursue their academic goals while providing for their families.
