Build a better World for Women and Girls
Our vision is powerful ...
Zonta International is a leading global organization of people dedicated to empowerment, service and advocacy. We envision a world where women’s rights are recognized as human rights and where every woman can reach her full potential. We stand for a world where women have access to all resources and are fairly represented in decision-making positions. We stand for a world where no woman lives in fear of violence.
... our mission is clear
Zonta International is actively dedicated to change by giving women a voice worldwide. We do this through service and advocacy, both locally and internationally. Beyond that, our clubs celebrate young girls and young women with scholarships and awards such as the Young Women in Public Affairs Award, the Jane M. Klausman Scholarship, and the Amelia Earhart Fellowship.
We act in line with Zonta International President Sharon Langenbeck’s motto for 2020-2022: “Transitions, Changes & New Opportunities.”

Thank you for your help for Ukraine!
After 9 weeks of war, we can summarize: Our donations are needed for refugees and for medical purposes. These needs are multiple.
