Zonta International Service Recognition Award - 2018
Zonta International presented awards at its 2018 Convention in Japan to recognize clubs for their various service projects.
The Service projects had to empower women and girls in general to achieve equal rights and to secure their access to all legal, political, economic, educational, health and professional resources; and Service projects focusing on prevention of violence against women and girls.
Our club was one of six finalists. To our surprise and overwhelming pleasure, we we awarded first place for our “It’s not your fault’ Service Project.
Andrew is in a Boy Scout who is completing a project to earn his Eagle Scout Badge. He is helping The CRIB Maternity Group Home of Family & Children’s Service of Niagara and asked our club for help.
The CRIB is a Maternity Group Home that provides transitional living program services to pregnant and/or parenting At-Risk, Runaway and Homeless youth and their children in a safe and nurturing environment. Pregnant and parenting youth not only need basic necessities like food and shelter, they must also learn to be effective parents.
In the true Zonta spirit our club came through with an overwhelming amount of donations of diapers/wipes, personal/feminine hygiene products, towels/washcloths and laundry soap just to name a few items.
