Zonta Says No


“Zonta Says NO to Violence against Women” is a Zonta International campaign to raise awareness of  the issue and increase actions to end violence against women and girls around the world. The campaign, which began in November 2012, features the service and advocacy actions of Zonta clubs and districts to prevent and end violence against women and girls in their local communities.
It also highlights Zonta International’s ongoing efforts to end violence against women and girls through the Zonta International Strategies to End Violence against Women (ZISVAW) program and through Zonta’s partnerships with the United Nations and its agencies.  
The ZONTA club of Geelong very much appreciates the support wereceive from members of the community. If you would like to make a donation towards one of our specific projects, or simply help the club with its work in general, please CLICK HERE.
