president
In 1970, Soroptimist International Osaka (SI Osaka) was born sponsored by SI Kyoto. Since then, we have been working to improve the status and education of women and girls for a better community in Osaka, and to believe that if all members join forces, they will be a great force. Over the past 50 years, we certified nine clubs in Osaka Prefecture, and these clubs have also created new clubs, and now there are 19 Soroptimist clubs in Osaka. Each club also has Σ and S Club to encourage young students to develop the spirit of service.
I would like to thank the senior members of the club for creating such a large circle of service, and I would like to cherish their aspirations and devote our energies to the club’s service activities this year. Thank you for your cooperation.
