Organise an assembly day
It is an enjoyable time working alongside other like minded people.
For organisations within Australia supplies are provided by the Birthing Kit Foundation (Aust). Instructions are then sent for the transport of the kits to their overseas destination.
For organisations outside of Australia wishing to hold an Assembly Day please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
What to do
An Assembly Day Manual is available to download which contains clear instructions on how to run a successful Assembly Day or email BKFA for a Manual to be sent to you.
You then need to contact our Supplies Officer email@example.com with the date of the impending Assembly Day - it is important to give the Supplies Officer 8 weeks notice.
Your financial contribution
To help cover the cost of supplies and transport for the kits a contribution of $3 per kit is required. All kits for assembly days are made in multiples of 200 ($600)
If you are a Zonta Club, your first priority in supporting international projects is to support the Zonta International service projects. One third of all fund raising is allocated each year to support Zonta international projects. These funds are crucial to the success of our Zonta International projects. To support the Birthing Kit Project any funds used need to come from the remaining two thirds of your fund raising. We ask Zonta Clubs not to divert funds usually destined for Zonta International to the Birthing Kit Project.
