SHENTON College students are set to help women around the world with their new Z Club.

The club has been sponsored by the Zonta Club of Perth, part of a global organisation assisting women with medical assistance, crisis accommodation and more.

One of the first projects the Shenton College Z Club will undertake is packaging birthing kits for women in developing countries; they are aiming to raise $3000 to package 1000 kits, and are welcoming any donations to help them reach their goal.

Head of Learning Gary Green said the project was part of the school’s head, heart and hands approach.

“Our students commit to a service project that they have chosen, feel emotionally connected to and then work as a community to make a real difference,” he said.

“It’s so important in the development of a child’s humanity.”
