Right Stuff presents plaque to SISVG

The work of Soroptimist International SVG (SISVG) has been recognized by Right Stuff, a leading provider of graphics and signage services here.

Earlier this month, Right Stuff presented a plaque depicting the origin of SISVG. The plaque summarizes how the club was established, lists the names of the first women to lead the organization and its date of charter.{{more}}

SISVG is an organization of women whose goals are to improve the lives and status of women and girls through education, empowerment or enabling opportunities, as well as be a voice for increasing access to education and leadership for women and girls. It was established by charter on July 14, 1987.

According to John Crichton, managing director of Right Stuff, “Soroptimist SVG has always had the support of Right Stuff because we admire the efforts of the club in supporting the vulnerable.”

Shannon Durrant-Samuel, Communication Officer of SISVG, on accepting the plaque thanked him on behalf of SISVG.

“For prospective, new and old members the plaque will be a medium through which they can understand the club’s history, and it will therefore be mounted at our meeting room at New Montrose, as it is part of our efforts at documenting Soroptimist’s historic past.”

Meanwhile, SISVG continues to fulfill its mission. On May 12, the club made its annual donation of XCD$1,200 to the Helping Hands Centre.

The cheque was presented by Soroptimist president Miriam Roache and accepted by the president of Helping Hands, Junior Bacchus.
