Welcome to the Zonta Club of Columbia. We are a service organization affiliated with Zonta International, a global organization of executives and professionals working together to empower women and girls worldwide through service and advocacy. Nearly 33,000 members belong to more than 1,200 Zonta Clubs in 67 countries and geographic areas.
Each year, thousands of women, men and children (victims) fall into the hands of traffickers in their own countries and abroad. Perpetrators of human trafficking target the marginalized and the impoverished, entrapping victims—the majority of whom are women and girls—for sexual exploitation, forced labor, domestic service and other forms of exploitation.
Zonta International is an organization pledged to empowering women at global and local levels, and to promoting justice and universal respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. Eliminating human trafficking is therefore critical to enabling women to achieve their full potential and live in a world without fear of violence.
Their vision became Zonta International, an organization that has grown to more than 29,000 members in 63 countries, working together to make gender equality a reality for women and girls worldwide.
