President's Corner
Nabeela is respected by the women at the Oasis 3 center and can teach many others how to weave. At home, in Syria, she hardly left the house and was completely dependent on her husband. It was in Za’atari, a camp that hosts 80,000 refugees, that she learned how to weave. What is even more remarkable, she has become the one who, today, actually takes the lead in her family.
We all lived a very emotional moment today: a victim of domestic violence broke down in tears as she shared her experience with us. Almost everyone else cried with her. Today, she receives training and money at the Taibeh Community Center and finds consolation in the collaboration and interaction with her Jordanian and Syrian co-students.

    “I joined Zonta not only due to my willingness to contributing to improve women’s well-being on this globe, but also because of meeting and collaborating with Zontians—a variety of smart and energetic women with different backgrounds, knowledge and experience. If not for Zonta, most likely I would never have met them.”
