Zonta Club of Hilo was founded in 1950.
We are part of Zonta International, a worldwide service organization of executives in business and the professions working together since 1919 to advance the status of women.
Today Zonta has about 31,000 members in more than 66 countries.
Zontians all over the world volunteer time, talents and support to
local and international service projects, as well as scholarship
programs aimed at fulfilling Zonta's mission and objectives.
Building off the theme of the 2013 Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) “Elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls”, “Zonta Says NO” is a campaign to raise awareness of Zonta’s efforts to end violence against women and girls at the club, district and international levels. It is also an opportunity to unite Zonta clubs and Zontians around the world in one common action and to promote our ZISVAW (Zonta International Strategies to End Violence against Women) projects.
