The December 10th President's Appeal 2015-2017 is 'Educate to Lead: Nepal', which seeks to Educate, Empower and Enable women & girls in Nepal to overcome adversity, and develop leadership skills that will in turn benefit entire communities. Calling on the collective power of Soroptimist International, the Appeal is launched with the announcement of the first three inspiring projects.

The first project supported is The Australian Himalayan Foundation and its Teacher Training & Quality Education ProgrammeProject Two is a Soroptimist project proposed by SI Truckee Meadows, which works to remove the barriers to education for women and girls in Nepal. The Tharu Women's Project is the third project to be supported by the Appeal. Developed by SI Oita-Midori, Japan it aims to provide literacy opportunities to 200 women. Click here to read more.


SI President Yvonne Simpson writes a message on the International Day of the Elimination of Violence Against Women: "25 November marks the start of 16 Days of Activism culminating in the celebration of Human Rights Day on 10 December.  On 25 of each month the call is for us to wear orange as a sign we want to eliminate violence against women. The connection is that to live in safety is everyone's right. To be treated with dignity and respect, to be free from harm, whether it be physical, psychological, or sexual, is one target of the 2030 agenda".
