Local Service Projects of the Zonta Club of Frederick

The Zonta Club of Frederick provides financial aid to various local projects when the needs arise.


In support of universal literacy, members of the club tutor both adults and children in literacy.


The club also sponsors the annual Art in the Park, a playground art show.


The current focus is on promoting women's health and eradicating violence against women and children.

Little Stones profiles four women, each of whom are contributing a stone to the mosaic of the women’s movement through their art.

 

The film and accompanying education initiative have been designed to raise awareness about global women’s rights issues, and

challenges facing women globally. The 60-minute documentary follows Brazilian graffiti artist Panmela Castro, Senegalese rap-singer Sister Fa, Indian dance therapist Sohini Chakraborty, and fashion designer Anna Taylor as they use their art to combat violence against women, sex trafficking, and to empower women and girls globally.


As part of Zonta Club’s efforts to stop violence against women, those attending the screening were asked to consider making a donation to Heartly House of Frederick.
