Local Service & Advocacy
In addition to supporting international service and award programs, every Zonta district and club around the world implements its own service and advocacy initiatives.  Thus, Zontians enact thousands of local actions that apply global human rights principles and Zonta International's Objects at the local level.  Below are some examples.

 

Service Recognition Awards

Zonta International presented its inaugural Zonta Service Recognition Awards at the 62nd Zonta International Convention in Orlando, Florida, USA in June 2014. The Awards were established to highlight and recognize the incredible service work undertaken by members of Zonta International to improve the lives of women and girls in communities across the globe. The Zonta International Service Committee received 99 nominations from 30 of Zonta’s 32 districts worldwide. The winning projects focused on different aspects of women’s health and violence against women in various regions of the world.
