Zonta International envisions a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.
In such a world, women have access to all resources and are represented in decision making positions on an equal basis with men. In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence.

District Service Projects
Zonta District 7 supports the Haiti Project which is endorsed by Zonta International and supported by clubs in the district. The focus is on education. The Zonta Club of St. Louis provides a scholarship for two Haitian students to attend a private school in Haiti. Periodic visits to Haiti and student updates help ensure that funding is making a difference.
A major focus of the Zonta Club of St. Louis is helping single mothers achieve their goal of obtaining a college education. We provide scholarships, life skills support and mentoring so they can provide a better life for their families through our Women’s Another Chance Scholarship Program. The St. Louis Club also provides many community grants to other local organizations, most of which are also involved in improving the lives of underserved and vulnerable populations.
