professionals empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.

Zontians in District 23 (Northern Territory, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia) support a range of service projects and awards at the International, District and Club levels to help women in Australia and overseas. 

Our District 23 service projects include

  • making and distributing breast care cushions for women (and men) recovering from breast surgery in Australia.
  • providing training for adult women within their communities with Mental Health First Aid skills.

In addition, we support a number of education awards including the Amelia Earhart Fellowships, Jane M Klausman Women in Business Scholarships, Young Women in Public Affairs Awards, and Women in STEM that provide financial assistance to help ‘kick start’ women’s scientific, business and public policy careers and acknowledge the quiet achievers in the community. Through Zonta service we can and do make a difference!
