Taking over as President of Soroptimist International of Calcutta this year (2019-20) in the 40th year of its existence, is both a privilege and a pleasure. It was in 1979 that a group of like minded ladies, known for their commitment to women’s issues, set up Soroptimist International of Calcutta to carry forward the goals of Soroptimist International, a worldwide organisation headquartered in London, towards making a difference in the lives of the women of Bengal.
The underlying goals of SI Calcutta, a purely voluntary organisation, is to follow the Sustainable Developmental Goals of the United Nations with special focus on women and the girl child. This has been the endeavour of its members throughout the past four decades, especially in the areas of health education, skill development, and awareness amongst others.
We welcome you to our website where we are proud to encapsulate the work done by our organisation, whose members have been untiringly involved in its multifarious projects.
