SIAPR Biennium Thrust 2022-2024
The Governor’s Biennium Thrust is a project chosen by the Region Governor during her term of office of two years. This biennium thrust is aimed to align with the mission, vision, and goals of Soroptimist in improving the lives of women and girls, particularly through education. This will enable them to become socially and economically empowered, thus, assuring them and their families of a better future. The project enjoins the participation of all clubs to enable the Region to achieve the Federation’s Big Accelerator Goal of providing education to five hundred thousand women and girls worldwide in the next ten years.
Rationale for this Project
Education is a basic human right. It enables and empowers a person.
Education helps one to acquire knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes to make informed decisions, lead meaningful lives, and undertake active roles in society.
In this context, women and girls must have the opportunity to be educated in any possible form—whether in academics, the arts, technical, or vocational—and to advance their personal and professional development.
Educating women and girls and providing opportunities for lifelong learning are basic to achieving gender equality.
For the above reasons and following the core mission of Soroptimist, clubs are encouraged to sustain the projects started under this program.
