About Hilo Zontians

What We’re About:
Women’s Rights Are Human Rights

The Zonta Club of Hilo envisions our island community as a place where women's rights are recognized as human rights and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.

The Hilo Club was formed in 1950 and is part of Area 7 (Hawaii) in District 9 (Hawaii, California, Utah, Arizona, Nevada and Northern Mexico.

The Zonta Club of Hilo keeps the main mission always in sight . . . to advance the status of women and girls worldwide. We do that through service and advocacy.

We are proud to be part of Zonta International and its efforts to promote the health and welfare of women and girls across the globe. Particular focus is to prevent violence against women and end human trafficking.

Locally, we support programs and services that advance women and children. We do this through direct service and contributions.

For our members, Zonta Club of Hilo provides opportunities to serve our community, broaden our knowledge base and network among colleagues and friends through program meetings that feature community speakers.
