International Programs

Since Zonta International was founded in 1919, Zontians have been passionate about empowering women in developing countries through international service. In the more than 90 years since its first international service project was funded, Zonta International has contributed nearly US$15.5 million to projects benefiting women in 37 countries.

Through funding from the Zonta International Foundation, the Zonta International Service Program has provided training, education, health, sanitation, agricultural and micro-credit assistance to women, primarily through projects implemented by the agencies of the United Nations and other recognized non-governmental organizations.

During the 2020-2022 Biennium, four projects are being supported by the International Service Fund:
