Lebanon Indiana is fortunate to have this facility in our community, dedicated to helping emotionally troubled youth. Our club members provide time, support and fun activities for the girls especially at Christmas, Halloween and Valentine's Day.
We reach out directly to the international community by supporting Kiva, which is a non-profit organization that combats poverty by making small loans to borrowers around the world. By donating at least $25 at each Zonta meeting, we are able to sponsor one borrower. When the borrower repays the money we invested, we can then re-invest that money in another borrower. Find more information about Kiva at www.kiva.org.
