One of the most active socio-civic clubs of Zamboanga City, the Zonta Club International of Zamboanga City, unveiled its marker at the end portion of Governor Camins Road (near the Zamboanga International Airport) last July 26, 2011. The marker symbolizes the commitment of this prestigious international association of professional and career women to serve their communities specially the women sector. It also will serve as a memento to the public that it exists in this city.

Special guest of honor was Zonta Area District-3 Director Dr. Flor Miel. She cut the ceremonial ribbon together with current Zonta Zamboanga President Rowena Tan. Among those who witnessed the historical event were PP Mary Usman, PP Chit Ong, Vice-Area 3 Director Dr. Fernandez, VP Nene Torres, Evelyn Balbon, Syra Ong, Baby Gayonilo, Remy Yu-King, new members Fatima Bagis and Lin Sy.

The club has been active in different charity works specially in depressed areas and during disasters. One of their greatest achievements is the construction of the Zonta Ayudahan Center in Canelar where different activities are being held. It serves as a daycare and a training center as well as a venue for medical-dental outreach programs. On-going is the construction of Zonta Village in Boalan. The club was chartered on May 23, 1980.
