79 On the basis of our message "Advancing the status of Women worldwide" more than 31,000 Zontians in approx. 1,200 Zonta Clubs in 66 countries support women-specific projects, not only regionally, but also internationally.

81 These projects are selected every two years at the International Zonta Convention by the club delegates from all over the world.

82 2008–2012 the Zonta International Foundation is providing the UN with US$ 3,150,000 for international projects:
