Mindful Respectful and Resourceful
This is the vision I have for my tenure as your new President. I am deeply honored and excited to represent SICB and sincerely look forward to working with all the amazing women in this Club whose service and dedication to this Club thus far is unparalleled.
The Soroptimist International Goals have been carved out for us. I am dedicated to guide our Club through these goals and be mindful of the objectives that are set out in achieving these goals. Goal 1 advocates that we improve the lives and status of women and girls.
How can we achieve this goal which is very much advocacy based? The answer lies in Goal 2 which missions us through the various Sustainable Development Goals. Any project that our club undertakes in line with these SDGs will be a positive step in achieving the SI objectives of being a global voice for women and girls. So long as we are mindful of our ultimate goals in carrying out our projects, we will be able to maintain our Club that already exists on the SI map.
The members in our Club are diversified. Such diversity in ideas and suggestions would lead us to greater success of our organization provided we remember to always remain respectful and helpful towards each other. Let us all be open minded to find the real value in each of us. Let us embrace the array of thoughts, views, suggestions and experiences that we bring together.
We need to be unified in any project that the Club undertakes and with such unity our path to greater heights of Club success becomes predictable. Whilst I appreciate that we are all volunteers, some commitment towards monthly meetings and project activities would go a long way in further maintaining our club solidarity. Sisters, please let us try to make more time for us.
Together, let us embark on projects which are meaningful and impactful to our SI objectives. Resourcefulness is a mindset relevant in achieving what we target. Let us be inspired with one another’s strength, ability to think out of the box and coming up with exceptional ideas to place us a cut above the rest with mind blowing PFRs and awards. Let us together get in the game of volunteerism and be deeply involved.
