Suzanne Ng President
“Rise to the Challenge”
As the 2023-2024 President of Soroptimist International of Central Solano County,
I am very excited to see what this new year will bring. “Rise to the Challenge” is an invitation to us all.
Life is full of challenges, and this is never more evident than in the women and girls we serve. They are the inspiration.
The Soroptimist Women who make up our membership
bring forth through our committees and programs, the best of qualities.
They bring their strength, talents, and the spirit of giving to help meet the educational and financial needs
of those women and girls in our community to reach economic empowerment.
I personally am very proud and humbled to be part of this club and to serve as this year’s President.
Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization working to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment. We raise funds through private donations and fund raisers in order to provide scholarships, awards and financial support to programs that benefit women and girls.
Some of the areas upon which we focus are domestic violence awareness; literacy and education; skills training and employment; women’s health; scholarship grants and awards; and contributions of food, clothing and back-to-school supplies.
