100 Acts of Kindness

By BEV RICHARDSON

2021 has been a year of significance to Soroptimists around the world as we celebrated our 100th Anniversary.

Soroptimist International started as a women’s protest movement in North America to advocate for the preservation of the large redwood trees in California threatened by loggers and went on to evolve into the modern organization it has become over the years.

Soroptimist International advocates for improvement in the lives of women and girls around the world through education, empowerment and enabling, with a seat at the table of the United Nations.

As part of the celebrations members of Soroptimist International of The Hills took part in the ‘100 Acts of Kindness’ initiative undertaken by Soroptimists around the world.

MULPHA MENTORING The Norwest Mentoring Program continues to thrive despite the disruption of the past two years, fostering a culture of collaboration, innovation, and lifelong learning.

Members donated luxury items, everyday necessities and gift vouchers to include in pamper packs for women in the community experiencing difficulties in their home lives and also gift vouchers for a number of children also affected.

The kindness initiative was done in partnership with Hills Community Aid. We also worked with The Hills Shire Council to be a part of the re-vamped Roxborough Park Rose Garden at Baulkham Hills with a special planting of a rose bed to mark 100 years of Soroptimist International.

Ten Little Sunset rose plants are part of the new Rose Garden and Commemoration Plaque was installed in the garden next to the arbor by Dr Michelle Byrne in one of her last official roles as The Hills Shire Mayor.

Members of Soroptimist International of The Hills held a Dedication ceremony.

Soroptimist International The Hills meets on the third Monday of the month. Visitors are always welcome. For details email [email protected]
