Zonta Club of Halifax

Our service projects have included preschool classes for hard-of-hearing children, shut-in library service and Meals-on-Wheels.

Currently, our efforts are directed mainly toward several local projects, and Zonta's International projects.

Locally, our current projects include:       

•  a self-managed resource centre for women in a public housing complex; 

•  a recovery home for addicted women 

 

 

Bayers-Westwood Family Resource Centre:

We support the women who make use of the centre by providing services (beauty treatments, computer system installation, etc.); goods (clothing, furniture, dry goods for their "Collective Kitchen", etc.); and financial assistance (travel expenses, tuition fees, etc.). 

 The Marguerite Centre:

We support The Marguerite Centre, a long-term facility providing a residential holistic program for women recovering from addictions and abuse. This 12-bed facility is the only one of its kind for women in the Maritime Provinces.

Zonta International Projects

Every year, the Zonta Club of Halifax's budget includes donations to Zonta International to the following:  The Young Women in Public Affairs Award, The Jane M. Klausman Scholarship, The Amelia Earhart Fellowship and International Service.

Every two years, Zonta International sponsors international programs in association with United Nations agencies that are working to empower women.  Our next Zonta International Convention will be held in Chicago, IL, the location of Zonta International headquarters.

Most of these programs are in developing nations and are selected by the Zonta International Board and approved by Zonta International membership. To learn more about the International Service Projects, visit the Zonta International Web Site.
