ZONTA’S MISSION:

Empowering Women Through Service and Advocacy at a global and local level.

This is achieved through local fundraising, service and fellowship.

What is Zonta?

  • Zonta International is a human rights organisation focusing on women and girls world wide.

Zonta Club of Noosa: 1408.  District 22.  Area 01.

The Zonta Club of Noosa was chartered as a club of Zonta International on 31 March 1993.

Club meetings are held at the Noosa Springs Golf Resort and Spa on the second Thursday of each month at 6.00 pm for a 6.30 pm start and conclude by 9.00 pm.  Our club membership consists of women from a diverse range of ages, experiences, professions and backgrounds.  All members are committed to working together to support major international projects through Zonta International as well as a range of local service and advocacy projects, awards and community-based initiatives.  If you would like to be invited to a monthly meeting OR wish to  contact the club, please send an email with your contact details.

Our Club supports projects such as:

  • The assembly of birthing kits for women in remote regions of the developing world which provide clean birthing conditions to women who give birth at home
  • Breast comfort cushions  distributed to women in local hospitals recovering from breast surgery
  • (Comfort Cushions Video:Click here)
  • Personal care packs to women’s refuges in the area
  • Scholarships for indigenous female students, women studying Science with environmental strand and women undertaking Business Studies
  • Bursaries for female school students at two local schools
  • Funding for the Cooroy Family Support Service for parenting skills workshops which build capacity and resilience for women who have experienced domestic violence or disadvantage such as poverty or homelessness
  • Advocacy initiatives such as Safer Families for Communities in collaboration with United Synergies and Noosa Council; White Ribbon Day and 16 days of Activism events

Each year the Club conducts a campaign to raise awareness of the incidence of violence against women and promote the Zonta Says No campaign.  For the past two years this has involved a procession along the Boardwalk in Noosa with members carrying orange cut-outs of women displaying messages that violence against women is not acceptable.

In addition to working on fundraising and advocacy issues, the club has a range of activities which provide fellowship and fun with like-minded women as well as the opportunity to form strong friendships with Zontians from other clubs through Area Meetings, District Conferences and International Conventions.
