Soroptimist International of Dallas collaborates with Girls Embracing Mother’s (GEM)

Our Soroptimist International of Dallas club collaborates with Girls Embracing Mothers, Inc. (GEM). This organization empowers girls in grades K-12 with mothers in prison, to break the cycle of incarceration and lead successful lives with vison and purpose. Girls are united with their mothers on Saturday a month to discuss issues and build a mother-daughter bond. In addition, workshops and camps are offered to help enhance self-esteem, develop leadership skills, and encourage communication.

During our time with the girls, their counselors and mothers, we talked about the history of Soroptimist and why we as members do our Dream It, Be It programs. At the end of the program we gave a donation in the amount of $300.00 to GEM.
