ENGLISH

sakamoto1970 was the year in which the World Exposition Osaka was held in all its glory.
At the same time, this is also the very year in which Soroptimist Osaka International was first recognized as an organization and started its existence.
Thanks to the selfless support provided by you all, we are happy to celebrate the 48th year of our organization during this current term.
Our members number forty. Regardless of age and moving forward beyond the supposed barriers of different occupations, we continue to do our very best to provide our voluntary services in a spirit of harmony.
Soroptimist International has the objective of giving women and girls the chance to realize the dream of a life led with purpose and optimism. To this end, we engage in numerous voluntary programs and various support activities, and we are a global support association formed by women.
In this term, our leading guideline is the “advancement of education for women and girls” as our point of focus. We make efforts to provide career support to further the dreams and future of young people. In addition, we also aim to offer a better environment for children who wish to work hard and diligently, or who hope to gain specific knowledge to become independent.
We will do all we can to grant this supposedly natural right even to women who are prevented
from achieving these goals by adverse circumstances. We want them to be able to develop their abilities and fulfill their wishes.
We hope for your your kind understanding as well as your future support. Should you happen to look at our homepage and feel that you have some interest in the activities of Soroptimist Osaka
International, please do not hesitate to contact us. We all are very much looking forward to hearing from you.
