Maria Theresa Klepp

Term:  2000 – 2002

It was really a big challenge to become President of Zonta Club of Cebu II, knowing that one will be at the helm of managing the Club composed of empowered Women who run important Organizations, big Firms, or work in the offices of influential people and other concerns of the men! I looked forward to implementing meaningful local service projects especially realizing the establishment of our One Stop Shop Crisis Center for Women & Children at the Don Vicente Sotto Memorial Hospital. Our Members who are the most valuable assets in our organization, not only provided assistance financially, but also personal contributions, such as expertise, insight, creativity and experience.

Membership in Zonta created opportunities for friendship with Women around the world, established mentoring relationships, offered leadership training, provided inspiration, promoted networking opportunities, and developed camaraderie.

We have shared enthusiasm and commitment and provided us members the tools & information that we need to effectively & efficiently achieve Zonta International’s objectives especially in advancing the Role of Women today!
