Kudos & Kindness: Soroptimists made empowerment camp possible

Live Violence Free, formerly the South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center, would like to extend a thank you to Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe for enabling us to conduct the first annual Girls Empowerment Retreat. Thanks to a grant from the Soroptimist group, we were able to plan and execute two sessions of this overnight camp, packed with fun and empowering workshops for transition-age girls. The workshops included self defense, leadership, self care, crafting and a session with the Humane Society. By the end of day two in both sessions, the girls were begging us to let them stay another night and, for us, that was a true measure of our success. Thank you Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe for your generosity and dedication to this community; we couldn’t have done it without you!
