The Project initiated in 2008 is our on-going service project. It is a programme to help secondary schoolgirls during their years of their secondary school education.

Under this programme each student will receive a monthly pocket allowance to enable them to have proper meals and for transportation. Life skill programmes are conducted to help instil in the teenagers a sense of self-worth and to learn skills such as personal hygiene and financial management.

Zonta Singapore believes that education should prepare people not just to earn a living, but to live a worthwhile life where young people can grow up to become responsible contributors to society. Hence Life skill programs are conducted for the girls by skilled professionals who are members or friends of the Zonta Club who are motivated to contribute back to society.

Funding for the project

We rely on financial support from friends of Zonta and from charitable organisations.

The Zonta Club of Singapore would like to thank our friends and supporters who so generously donated toward our Club's Project Pari social project. We would like to report that a total of S$100K was raised at our 40th Anniversary dinner. Special thanks go to Ngee Ann Development Pte Ltd for their cheque of $80,000 toward Project Pari which was received separately.

This makes the total sum raised for Project Pari at $180K.

In 2009, donations amounting to $65,400 have been received from the Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple, the Lee Foundation and from pledges by Zonta members and friends.

Why donate to Project Pari?

Project Pari is named in honour of the late Pari Viswalingam. This project is a tribute to her dedication to education and her loyal service to Zonta Singapore.

Your donation will help promising young girls from secondary 1 to 5 who are in need of financial assistance. Project Pari is open to young girls of all races and religion. We select candidates in close collaboration with the schools based on the students’ financial background, positive attitude and willingness to learn.

Would you do your part to provide a helping hand?

You can help promising young girls to see life from a different perspective and to embrace a sense of hope for their future through Project Pari.
