From the President's Desk
The Zonta Club of Naples is comprised of a wonderful group of loyal business professional and executive women. Together we support and advocate the "Sustainable Development Goal No.5 - Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. These dynamic women give their support, time, energy and expertise throughout the year participating in fundraising events making it possible for the club to support five (5) local charities; PACE school for girls, both Teenage Parenting Program of Immokalee and Naples; the Shelter for Abused Women and Children, Path2Freedom - Human Trafficking of women and children. These funds enable the club to give scholarships and grants, as well as sponsor like-minded organizations who support Zonta's mission. I am truly honored to work with these women, who give unselfishly to support the mission of Zonta. Janice M. Green, Ph.D. Zonta Club of Naples, President
