This award is in recognition of efforts to raise awareness of SIA’s mission to improve the lives of women and girls and our club's work in the community that supports the mission. We are one of 1290 Clubs in 20 countries and WE DID IT!! WOO HOO. I am so excited for us, and so very proud of each one of our members, who have given so generously of their time and talents to bring GOOD THINGS to so many women and girls in Simi Valley.
There is an African saying: "If you educate a man you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman you educate a family." With our awareness and community efforts we are already helping eight local women pursue educational and career opportunities. The work we are doing will impact our community for generations.
Ultimately, that is what this award signifies, because through public awareness and our community work, we are able to touch lives.
