As we experience uncertainty in these unprecedented times, kindness unites us as a global community. Everyone has the power to make a positive difference in the lives of others by giving to those in need. Through the collective efforts of Zonta’s members, we can make a measurable impact in the lives of women and girls across the world.

Typically, donations collected at the Zonta International Convention build a solid foundation toward meeting our fundraising goals. Unfortunately, we lost this opportunity because the 2020 Convention was canceled due to COVID-19. The Every Member Every November District Challenge was created to build up this base while also allowing for some friendly inter-district competition.

We encourage each member to make a personal gift through their district's team, or the individual member team, page in support of Zonta's international service projects.  With each gift, your district has the opportunity to be promoted within the Zonta community. 

What will your gift do?

US$50 could provide antenatal care kits to four pregnant adolescent girls in Niger, promoting better health, including preventing anemia and low birth weight of newborns, frequent health threats for girls who are married at a young age and their children.

US$100 could enable three girls in Madagascar to benefit from a comprehensive three-month life skills course, which will equip them with the strategies to reduce violence, protect themselves and improve social cohesion.

US$250 could provide three adolescent girls in Peru with access to quality, comprehensive and gender-sensitive adolescent health care, with an emphasis on mental health and violence prevention, and who will attend schools that can address all types of violence.
