Zonta Says NO Recap
This year's Zonta Says NO campaign has been an incredible display of what we can do as a group to make our world without violence a reality. Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2021 campaign. We received many reports of actions to end violence against women and girls around the world; however, you can still share your club's action at www.zonta.org/shareyourstory
Every Member Every November
Thank you to everyone who participated in Every Member Every November this year! Together, we raised US$161,054. We also had almost 400 members and friends attend our Zonta Says NO summit, raising an additional $3,910 for the Zonta Foundation for Women International Service Fund. Every donation to the Foundation gives a woman or girl a chance, an opportunity and a voice toward her own empowerment. Thank you!
Although the campaign has passed, we continue to work toward meeting our fundraising goal of US$4.8 million. Donations to the Zonta Foundation for Women have a life-changing impact on the women and girls involved in Zonta’s educational programs and international service projects. If you have not already made a donation to the Foundation this year, it's not too late. Join your fellow Zontians in making a difference for women and girls.

Giving with a purpose local actions
Our clubs and members empower women in their community by giving with a purpose through service and advocacy on a local level. Read the stories below that showcase their fantastic work.
Zonta Club of Accra Jubilee organizes local health screening
The Zonta Club of Accra Jubilee, Ghana, organized a health screening and sexual reproductive health program on 28 October in the underprivileged community of Chorkor. Chorkor has notably high levels of teenage pregnancy and early marriage. Through this program, the club seeks to transform the outlook for girls by empowering them with education and sexual reproductive health awareness, which will help launch and protect their dreams.
The club plans to have a biennial health screening and sexual reproductive program. For their first year, they reached 113 females, of which 66 were girls.
Zonta Club of Helsinki III became Santa's little helpers
For many years, the Zonta Club of Helsinki III, Finland, celebrate during this time of year by having a holiday dinner and exchanging presents. However, the members wanted to do something more.
The club partnered with Helsinki ensikotiyhdistys, an organization that provides a place for unhoused mothers and children to live after the birth of a child, and prepares gifts and cards for the children. Despite not knowing the children's names due to privacy issues, the club ensures the little ones and their loved ones are thought of and the members are very grateful to be holiday helpers this year.
Have you and your club given back to your community with a purpose of fulfilling our mission? Share your story today and show the world how Zontians make a difference, together!
