Quota International is a non-profit organization empowering women, children, the deaf and hard-of-hearing, and people with speech difficulties in local communities around the world.
OUR CURRENT WORK
- We Share -
Quota International members serve our local communities and the world. Founded in 1919 as the first international service organization for women, we have since expanded our clubs to include men and women throughout North America, South America, the Caribbean, the South Pacific, Southeast Asia, and Europe. Our motto, “We Share,” leads us to help and encourage others, while developing friendships and promoting international understanding. We are known especially for our service to disadvantaged women and children and to people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or who have speech difficulties.
- We Care -
As members of Quota, we have fun and feel a greater sense of belonging and as we serve our communities in our local clubs. We share a variety of experiences, both in our outreach efforts and through our fellowship events. We also value opportunities to meet members of other Quota clubs from our own countries and from abroad at regional meetings, international conventions, as well as through special member areas on this website and Quota's other social media accounts. While serving others is our top priority, establishing lifelong friendships is a natural result of the work we do together in support of our cause.
