Help Improve The Lives Of Women And Girls

You Can Make A Difference

Stand up for women and girls with Soroptimist International of Raleigh, NC. Every woman we help to achieve her educational goals and every at-risk girl we inspire to dream big begins with you. Your support will help their dreams become reality.

Our Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women assist women who provide the primary financial support for their families, giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.

Women like Lyndsay, a 2020 Live Your Dream Award Recipient. Lyndsay grew up in an abusive household, and later struggled with addiction and was in an abusive relationship for six years. She left the relationship and moved back to North Carolina to carve out a healthier life for herself and her daughter.

“I am finally going to graduate in May with my bachelor’s degree. I could not be more excited. At that point I will be able to step up as a team lead at the mental health agency where I work. I appreciate everything Soroptimist has done for Willow and me, plus the confidence it has brought me.”

Over half of our Live Your Dream Awards recipients are survivors of domestic violence, trafficking or sexual assault. Nearly all of the women and families we serve have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, teen pregnancy, and drug or alcohol addiction.

The impact of the award on these women’s lives is significant:

  • 86% of Live Your Dream Award recipients completed their education and improved their standard of living
  • 97% of recipients are now living in a safe environment (of the 53% who are survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, trafficking and/or prostitution)
  • 94% of recipients report the award has increased their self-esteem
