Norwalk, CA— In celebration of Women’s History Month, Soroptimist International of Norwalk/Santa Fe Springs donated $140 for Custody to Community Transitional ReEntry Program (CCTRP) to fund General Educational Development, the alternative to a High School diploma (GED) testing.  

Six women, Jacqueline, Zoila, Tami, Dimantria, Judy and Katherine, (pictured in photo) are representative of CCTRP participants studying to take the GED test or who have successfully completed parts of their GED exam in pursuit of their educational goals. 

CCTRP’s mission is to help women in transition with employment, counseling, education, and other vital services. Soroptimist Vice President Marilee Stefenhagen said, “This donation is part of a continuing partnership between Soroptimist and CCRTP, and we hope to fund many more GED exams in the future.”
