Envision a world where no woman lives in fear of violence
For almost 100 years, Zonta International has contributed to help achieve a world free of violence against women and girls through service and advocacy.
Globally, gender-based violence is the most pervasive and least recognized human rights violation. Rooted in inequality, it affects women of every race, class, culture, ethnicity, age and country. Violence against women and girls threatens countries, inhibits economic progress, and prevents women from contributing to their community and creating better lives for themselves and their families.
Through funding from the Zonta International Foundation, the Zonta International Strategies to End Violence Against Women (ZISVAW) Program has provided more than US$5.5 million to support projects to prevent and end violence against women and girls in 42 countries.
Zonta International is currently supporting two projects through the ZISVAW Fund
