Claire Hublet, President SIB 2016-2018

Spring is on our doorstep and like nature, let us nurture our energy and enthusiasm.

We wish some of you to enjoy a very good holiday while wishing others who continue their daily missions all the best at work.

Congratulations to all on your mobilization, both in the north and south of the country, during the campaign to raise awareness about the importance of organ donation. More than 320,000 bread bags were distributed in 328 bakeries with the text:

"Register as an organ-, blood & stem cell donor"

I give you my heart"

Many thanks to all the participants.

 

 

On March 8, we will be celebrating International Women's Rights Day.

Many advances have been made by women in developed countries. These countries have adopted a constitution guaranteeing the enjoyment of human rights without discrimination on grounds of sex. But this is not the case in many parts of the world.

Do you know that despite this, still today:

  • Women work two-thirds of the world's working hours but earn only 10% of the world's income.
  • Two-thirds of 880 million illiterate adults are women.
  • Women still have difficulty accessing positions of responsibility in companies and their salaries are   lower  than that of their male colleagues.

Our goal as Soroptmists is to fight the obstacles to women's leadership by helping women and girls achieve independence.

  • Let us invest in education and leadership.
  • Let us invest in the national mentoring project by helping young women develop their professional or personal ambitions.
  • Let clubs award grants to give women and more particularly refugee women opportunities to realize their dreams, to be autonomous and free.

My programme :

I am here to assist you and to listen to you in order that the two years of my Presidency may reflect the dynamism of each and every club, without which nothing can be achieved. You, the members, are the driving force, and it is only by working together that we will be able to implement this programme and promote our values.

  • The role of President is above all to be at the service of our organisation.
  • For me, to be President means that my role is to coordinate, inspire, facilitate and motivate our members.

Many thanks in advance to those who will engage in these projects.

The Soroptimist International of Europe Congress

 will take place in the beautiful city of Florence from 14 to 18 July 2017.

The theme "Education - passport for a better life" is a challenge for all of us. It is an opportunity to meet women from all over Europe and Africa; active and determined women in the areas we care about. I hope to see very many of you there. Inform us of your registration on the Belgian website (activities - 14-7-2017 -SIB - Conference Florence).
