About Zonta Club of Victoria

Our History
On 4 October 1991, the Zonta Club of Victoria was established in Hong Kong. Today, we have a total of 36 members, and they are all capable and accomplished women from various professions and businesses..

Over the past years, the Zonta Club of Victoria, with the zeal, commitment and energy of the small but highly efficient group of members, has bloomed and blossomed. Apart from being supportive of Zonta International programs, we have been actively engaged in various social service programmes and charitable activities to serve Hong Kong.

We are fully committed and dedicated to the well-being of the local community. We take care of the children and youngsters as they are our future. We see family as the core and source of love. That is why we are keen to assist families in need. We also support the elderly, the sick and the people with disabilities. We want to assure them that they are not neglected. As part of our community, we are interested in the events and people around us . We are always prepared to help those in difficult times.

Message from Current President
I joined the Zonta Club of Victoria in 2011 and since then have tremendously benefitted from all
the advocacy, social services, fundraising, fellowship events and inspiring talks arranged by our
dedicated members.

I deeply admire and respect all our past presidents who served our club diligently and efficiently
in addition to their leading roles in work and family: Jane, Lydia, Laura, Susan, Paula, Canissa,
Anna, Mandy, Carrie, Sandra, Bonnie, Vivianne, Sylvia, Flora, Karen…I salute you all! With
full support from your families, colleagues, bosses and business partners, you took turns to lead
our club from 1991 through thick and thin of the Hong Kong political and economic situations,
acting with passion, wisdom and flexibility to serve our club and the community in Zonta spirits.
And some of you even served for two separate terms of presidency. Under your leadership and
influenced by your passion, we are encouraged to bond tighter as sisters, seek donations, carry
out projects with our social service partners, learn from each other and from all whom we meet
together.

Goals provide a roadmap and help us to focus. Our biennial goals shall follow what Zonta
International has guided us to focus in the coming two years. To empower women through
service and advocacy is why we exist. In the coming biennium, we shall continue to be a leading
advocate for women’s rights and equality and a life free of violence. Our projects shall focus
on women’s and girls’ issues and be sustainable. To achieve such goals we shall endeavour to
increase donations and membership and reach out to our local communities with enthusiasm and
unfailing efforts.

Ask any of us why we joined this club, we shall promptly and heartily say we did it for the social
service and fellowship, as a way of affirming ourselves, discovering and realising our hidden
potentials, and contributing to our society. Small in number as we are, we believe we can, with
concerted efforts, make a difference.

Do join hands with me, the New Executive Board and all members of our club, and shout cheers
for Zonta.

Shirley Chu
Incoming President 2016-2018
