History of Zonta Club of Miaoli
Miaoli is a Hakka- style city for its rich scenic resources , mountains , rivers , good air and hospitality of its people . All elements that keep people living here peaceful and hard - working , especially when it comes to getting away from bustling cities .
Founded in 2003, Zonta Club of Miaoli was chartered under the assistance of Zonta Club of Hsinchu , all the members are from certain levels of social position or achievement . The diverse backgrounds enable us to use our specialties to not only raise awareness to women related social issues but also promote women's rights .
The first president , Shinning Wang and five successive presidents contribute their leadership and effort to carry forward our achievements on advancing the status of women at the global and local level . Not only devote ourselves in promoting international goodwill but also do our best to offer financial help to the needy , both in Miaoli and Taiwan .
We routinely visit and subsidize "Hsin-miao Asylum" , an institute for the mentally and physically handicapped individuals . We donated to "Butterfly Bakery" , a baker training program to help women to have the ability at increasing their income .
We also routinely pay a visit to Hong - Guang , Li - Yuan , Wu - Shan Nursing Homes. There , we deliver our love and care to those who aged and lost their health .
With the guide from our first president , Shinning Wang , the Director of Miaoli Women and Children's Welfare Department , the most important program we carry on for years is to help female immigrants to have better life in Taiwan , improving both of their finance and equal rights .
In the coming years , we would like to infuse educational and entertaining content in our programs to attract more participants .
We must make efforts to recruit new members who identify with Zonta causes .
We should take moves to expand the exposure of Miaoli Club , letting people know our services in both Miaoli and Taiwan .
Also we should do our best to support and participate in Zonta International projects and activities.
Most Zontians are professionals who are distinguished members in their specific fields . We learn a lot from one another and we join our forces to serve our communities and devote ourselves to public services .
THIS IS ZONTA VALUE .
