Soroptimist International of Woodland has provided education on the prevalence and conditions of human trafficking in our communities for over a decade.
As part of the Stop Trafficking Committee, Soroptimist International of Woodland, in partnership with Soroptimist International of Davis, have been donating “rescue backpacks” for victims of human trafficking.
DRESS A GIRL
Dress a Girl Around the World began back in 2006 as a program of Hope 4 Women International, a nondenominational Christian organization. "We dream of a world in which every girl has at least one new dress. We want girls to know that they are worthy of respect and they are loved by God." When we heard that many, many girls were also being protected from human trafficking as a result of “Dress a Girl”, we knew we had to help!
