LIVE YOUR DREAM AWARD

LYDAwardLogo

Soroptimist Clubs have been empowering women through access to education since 1972 with our cornerstone program – the Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Awards)

Each year, more than $1.6 million in education grants are awarded to more than 1,200 women, many of whom have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic violence, and/or drug and alcohol abuse.

Over the weekend, May 27 and May 28,  our membership refurbished an apartment at Nova Vita in Brantford thanks to a grant from Soroptimist International of the Americas.

It was a busy couple of days of painting, furniture assembly, and decorating.  We send out a big thank you to our Mr.Soroptimists – Scott, Dan, Chris and John. We couldn’t have done it without you.  Check out the before and after pictures! We are so pleased with the results and to help such a wonderful organization!
