Zonta is an international service organization with the mission of advancing the status of women, with over 33,000 women and men working together in more than 1100 clubs in 65 countries around the world. We provide service and advocacy through projects to improve the health, education, economic and political status of women and girls. The Zonta Club of Canberra Inc was chartered in 1969. Here in the Nation's capital we are supporting women through a variety of community-based projects. Our current flagship projects for this year are: supporting local women's shelters, Breast cushion project, Birthing kits and the Canberra branch of the St Vincents De Pauls Street to Home Program.

To assist in this work, the Canberra club will hold various fund-raisers throughout out the year. Some examples of the items that will be provided to the women's refuge are toiletries and personal items, linen, mattresses and beds and Christmas hampers.
