Thanks to the efforts of our predecessors, we have been able to connect with a variety of people and expand the scope of our activities. The service activities that our members, who are active in various fields in society, perform together are more than just service activities; they are invaluable to our members.
Today, there are a variety of challenges both at home and abroad, and the number of people in need of support seems to be increasing. The social situation is also affecting our daily lives, and the club is no exception to the rule. As we search for new directions, together with like-minded people, we will continue to move forward as Soroptimist International Osaka.
Soroptimist International Osaka” with like-minded people, while exploring new directions.
