As the Soroptimist team continues its work to create sustainable, measurable change in the lives of girls in our 20 countries and territories, we are optimistic this program will help girls to reach their full potential and live their dream.
"Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls" will help girls grow up to be strong, successful, happy adults. The program targets girls in secondary school who face obstacles to their future success. It provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and the resources to live their dreams.

Moldova remains one of the poorest countries in Europe. Largely owing to poverty, Moldova is a major source and, to a lesser extent, a transit country for women and girls trafficked for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation.
