We want every woman in the world to be able to reach her full potential. We want a world where women have access to all resources on the same terms as men and where no woman is afraid of violence. In order for this to become a reality, we have a close collaboration with the UN and work with international projects for equality and human rights, with a focus on women's and girls' health, education and the economy.
Zonta provides financial support to several projects for human rights and gender equality, often in collaboration with various UN agencies. The projects we are involved in are, among other things, about promoting women's health, education and economic situation. We also work with projects to abolish gender-based violence, child marriage and human trafficking.
With our scholarships, we want to support education and commitment for women and girls as part of our work for an equal society.
Through Zonta, you make new friends and contacts both locally and internationally, and thanks to exciting lectures and study visits in your club, you gain new knowledge in various fields. We are around 25,000 members in around sixty countries working towards the same goal.
