Quota International is a non-profit organization empowering women, children, the deaf, hard of hearing, and speech-impaired in local communities around the world.
Founded in 1919 as one of the first international service organization for women, Quota today includes men and women in clubs 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, and speech impaired.
