Soroptimist International Osaka (SI Osaka) will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year thanks to the cooperation and joint efforts of the groups involved and all of you. It is a year of the summarization of the work that we did so far this year.
I would love to do volunteer activities with all members of the organization, following traditions and previous history of our leaders, regardless of age, occupation, or geographical location.
Specifically, I’d like to place emphasis on service and support closely tied to local communities and also to engage in the international volunteer program with our Friendship Link club, based the governor’s guideline, “Women’s and girls’ lives can be improved. The possibilities for women and girls are cherished and promoted by education. We can help people who are viewed as socially weak.”
I am grateful to all of the groups involved and to all of you for your helpful work and sincere understanding, and I would like to ask for your continued support of our organization in the future.
You can take a look at our website and see our volunteer programs, commendation project and the reports of our activities, and if you’d like to get involved as Soroptimist member, please let me know.

President of Soroptimist International Osaka
