Soroptimist International
of Martinez

Soroptimist membership celebrates the unique power of women. It's a gift that women give to
themselves: the chance to help others in an atmosphere of support, friendship and fun. We hope
you have fun exploring our website, learning more about the Soroptimist outlook, how we choose
our programs of service and what successes we enjoy.

When Tricia and Anthony Isayi spoke at our Soroptimist meeting little did they realize that they
would set into motion a tidal wave of Soroptimist support. Their Operation Orphans International
project has been chosen as the Founder Region's International Project for 2011-2012. That means
that throughout our Region, from Crescent City, CA down to Fremont, CA, a lot of fundraising is
taking place because we're building a school in Kenya!

Locally in our home town we are supporting the young women at Juvenile Hall; giving awards and
scholarships to young women and students; sewing blankets for Children's Family Services;
sponsoring the Martinez Chamber's Woman of the Year award; and, participating in Relay for Life.
We're looking forward to a busy and productive year! We hope you can join us at one of our
meetings and decide if Soroptimist membership is the right choice for you!

Soroptimist International of Martinez Celebrates...
The Children in Shisasari, Kenya

Send a girl to secondary school and give
her a chance to live her dreams. The
property is already purchased and the
ground is ready to be broken. Let's make
this a breakthrough year for our
international goodwill and understanding!
