Zonta International is a global organisation committed to empowering women and girls.
Zonta envisions a world in which women’s rights are recognised as human rights, where every woman is able to achieve her full potential, where they have access to resources and decision-making positions on an equal basis with men, and where no woman lives in fear of violence.
In keeping with this vision, since 1919, Zonta has implemented service and advocacy projects and educational programs to improve the legal, political, economic, educational and health status of women and girls. Zonta clubs around the world implement projects in their own communities and raise funds to support them. In addition, one third of monies raised is contributed to the Zonta International Foundation to support global activities. There are 1,200 Zonta Clubs in 63 countries, with global membership of approximately 29,000 Zontians.
