    We Are Zonta



    Member, Centennial Anniversary Committee
    Zonta Club of Ibadan, Nigeria

    “I joined Zonta to work with women of like minds in lifting up less fortunate women, and to have fun while doing so.”


    Zonta Club of Riga, Latvia

    “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.”



    Zonta Club of Para District Area Inc, Australia

    “Many years ago I received a Zonta community award. I soon learned of the many services they provide and was impressed by the Zonta International Objects. I renew my membership because I feel proud to belong to an international organization that serves communities at a local level and in the world.”

    “I am in Zonta for fun, friendship and that feeling that I get when I know I am doing something to help other women and girls in New Zealand and around the world.”
