The Zonta Club of Bundaberg Inc was chartered on 24 August 1990.
It meets on the first Tuesday of each month at Rowers on the River, cnr, Quay and Toonburra Streets, from 6:00 for a 6:30 pm start. The Club currently has 31 members, all of whom are dedicated supporters of the goals and ideals of Zonta International.
The Club has been a very active force in the Bundaberg Community, contributing by way of service and advocacy projects. Locally we regularly support EDON Place, Women’s Domestic Violence Service and Phoenix House (Sexual Assault Service). We give an annual bursary to seven girls from the local area who are transitioning from primary to high school. We hold an annual community breakfast for International Women’s Day. We are continually looking for new ways that we can empower women within our community.
Ongoing Australia-wide projects include purchasing materials and making cushions for local breast cancer patients. Annually the club also purchases and assembles, with the assistance of students from Shalom College, birthing kits that provide a clean and safe birthing environment for mothers and their babies in developing countries.
Our club actively engages in the Zonta International 16 Days of Activism and developed an orange shopping bag with the message “Zonta Says SAY NO to Violence against Women”.
Our members are committed to fundraising in order to support our local projects and to support Zonta International’s many aid, advocacy and educational projects.
