What is SILA?
Who We Are?
SILA stands for Slovenian International Ladies’ Association. The word “sila” also means “strength” in the Slovene language. SILA is a non-governmental, non-religious and non-profit organisation, formed in 1993 and run voluntarily by its members. SILA offers its members numerous opportunities to participate in diverse and interesting activities to foster deeper mutual understanding among ourselves and to expand our knowledge of Slovenia and the rest of the world.
Currently SILA has nearly 130 members of all ages from over 38 countries. Some are living in Slovenia temporarily, while others have been resident for many years, including many Slovene ladies. Our members have highly diverse backgrounds, including business, HR, politics, PR or spouses of diplomatic representatives.
To welcome and assist newcomers to Slovenia, share information and experience, foster goodwill and friendship among our members, further members’ knowledge and understanding of Slovenia by organising cultural, sports, educational and social activities and raise funds for the benefit of selected charity projects.
Our humanitarian mission
An important part of our activities are also charitable events, e.g. SILA bazaar - the ultimate event, held annually at the end of November, in order to collect money to help people in need.
If you want to donate to Sila and help our selected projects, you can contact us for more information or donate directly on our account: 30000-0104338280 at Sberbank d.d.
