Soroptimist International of Dundas-Ancaster-Flamborough was chartered in 1987 (we call ourselves SI-DAF). We are women at their best helping other women achieve their best! In 2012, we were very excited to celebrate our 25th anniversary!
What do we do?
Soroptimist connects women: to each other, to the local communities of Dundas, Ancaster & Flamborough and to the world. Together, we focus on issues such as domestic violence, poverty, lack of adequate child care, sexual harassment, inequities in the workplace, and other challenges unique to today’s women.
Soroptimists connect in a spirit of friendship to bring fresh and innovative approaches to addressing some of society’s greatest challenges. Locally, projects target the needs of the community, particularly to assist women and girls. Find out more about our club projects »
