Soroptimist International of Chino Hills/Inland Empire is part of a global network of women working to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. Women are economically empowered when they can have a voice in the financial decisions to shape their lives and the lives of their families. Women are socially empowered when they have a personal sense of autonomy, self-confidence, and the power to control their private and public lives. Our club is comprised of women from many different backgrounds and professions, but one thing we all have in common is our passion to foster hope and inspire others, especially women and girls, to live their dreams.
Approximately 75,000 Soroptimists in about 132 countries and territories support community-based and global projects benefiting women and girls. The organization is particularly concerned with providing women and girls access to education, as this is the most effective path to self-determination.
The name, Soroptimist, means "best for women," and that's what the organization strives to achieve. Soroptimists are women at their best, working to help other women to be their best.
