Ballina Soroptimist Club
We are an international womens' organisation/ charity whose main concern is the betterment of the life, survival rate and welfare of girls and women , both in our own locality, nationally and internationally ie principally, in the Third World. Our present International Project is "Orange the World".....a movement to raise awareness of the prevalence of domestic abuse and violence, perpetrated against women, and against men, in their own home. Unfortunately, many people in Ireland alone have lost their life in the place where they should be the most safe. Our aim is to educate and support both young people, girls and boys, as well as their distraught parents in methods of protecting themselves in the face of the very real dangers they can face on a daily basis.
