Welcome to Soroptimist International of Apache Junction!
Loosely translated, Soroptimist means best for women. That's what we aim to be: women at our best, helping other women to be their best.
SIAJ has been an active part of the Apache Junction and surrounding communities since 1971. Our members are passionate about where we live, work and play! Join us as we make a difference in the lives of women and children in our community as well as around the world!
Who are Soroptimists?
Founded in 1921, Soroptimist International is a global volunteer movement working together to transform the lives of women and girls. Our network of around 80,000 club members in 130 countries and territories works at a local, national and international level to educate, empower and enable opportunities for women and girls.
It's true that both men and women live in poverty, face discrimination and must overcome obstacles. But throughout history—in every country in the world—women and girls face additional obstacles and discrimination solely because of their gender.
By initiating club projects that benefit women and girls, and by honoring women who help women and girls, we improve the status of women and girls. Soroptimist projects and programs aid women economically, and empower them to make positive changes in their lives and their communities.
