2013 Presidentakako Nakai

In summer of 2013, we had to live in unbearable heat, and well-developed thunderclouds caused local downpours in hundreds of places all through Japan. Probably they were caused by combination of many

meteorological conditions, but we need to understand that global environmental change is the underlying cause. The weather in this summer let us seriously consider affections by the heat emitted from our daily lives.
Soroptimist International is a world organization of women working as managers or specialists, with our theme of “improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and through the world.” We would like to

maintain our voluntary activities with the theme while we pay more attention to a global environmental problem.
We appreciate for your further support for our activities.
