Message from the President

President I am most humbled and honored as the President of Zonta Club of Kowloon for the 2016-2018 biennium. The Club has a long and successful history in helping people in need since 1977. I have to pay tribute to all my predecessors who have laid a very solid foundation for us to expand this charitable business.

My heartfelt thanks to the Immediate Past President Ms. Julianne Doe and her Board for what they have accomplished in the past two years of fruitful term. Many projects which they initiated will be further developed in our new term. These include the "First Action Moment" 1AM mobile App for helping sexual abuses against women, "Love Connection" for youths and health project for underprivileged women.

Our Zonta visions are in such a world that:

Women's rights are recognized as human rights

Every woman is able to achieve her full potential

Women have access to all resources

Women are represented in decision making positions on an equal basis with men

No woman lives in fear of violence

Together, we are here committed to make a difference of the world. I am quoting Margaret Mead, an anthropologist "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has ......."

Going forward, I and my new Board together with all chairpersons of eleven Committees are aspired and dedicated to building our Club in women empowerment and helping the needy people in Hong Kong through service and advocacy. A number of service projects and advocacy projects will be developed in the coming biennium.

Nurturing future women leaders is always on our priority mission. We shall fully support and mentor the six student Z Clubs at our collaborated secondary schools and two Golden Z Clubs at two collaborated universities through our sponsorship in their charity works, soft skill education and "Zonta Club of Kowloon Scholarships".

Building up lifelong friendship through charity works; fellowship sharing through travelling and gourmet fantasy; learning art appreciation, new knowledge, and new order of the world / the community through our different progarammes are always other incentives in joining this Club.

May I welcome you to our website which I hope that you will find it informative and interesting!

Agnes Koon
