President’s Message

Home / President’s Message

Welcome to Soroptimist International of Calcutta. We are committed to transform the lives of women and believe that small steps add up to big results. That is why we focus on issues that matter to women – such as education, sanitation, healthcare, legal awareness and much more. Every project we follow, allows women to speak up and be heard by those around them, shaping not only individual lives, but also communities.

It is this thought which has kept the heart of our organisation beating for the last 38 years. We are involved in causes and activities to build dignity, justice and respect for women everywhere. Our support consists of members committed to this cause, who guide our various projects and activities. We are immensely proud of them & of our initiatives.
However, we still have a long way to go, and to quote an African  proverb, ’If you want to travel fast, go alone. If you want to travel far, go together’!
I therefore welcome you to our web page and encourage you to discover our work, learn more about the issues that matter to us, and find out ways in which you can help or partner with us. Together we can make a difference.

With Warm Wishes,

Meenakshi Ray
(President 2017-18)
