Quota International Inc
QUOTA Club International Kuala Lumpur is part of the network under Quota International Inc, which was founded by Wanda Frey Joiner in New York, in 1919. In the midst of an era of female suppression, Wanda Frey Joiner realised that women had a tremendous contribution to make to their communities and invited like-minded women to form the first Quota Club. Today, hundreds of Quota Clubs exist in many countries including the United States, Canada, Australia, Philippines, New Zealand, India, Indonesia, Curacao, Aruba, Fiji, Netherlands, Suriname and Malaysia. The headquarters of Quota International is in Washington DC.

What does a Quota Club do?
The objectives of a Quota Club are:
  • To serve country and community
  • To develop good fellowship and friendship
  • To develop the potential in us to serve others in disadvantaged situations
Quota Clubs around the world are involved in a wide range of service projects with special emphasis in the area of hearing and speech impairment, through its Shatter Silence programme and other programmes to help the disadvantaged. The Club’s hearing and speech projects have resulted in the captioning of television shows and educational videos and the purchase of hearing equipment for schools and colleges. These actions have increased public awareness of the help and hope available to hearing and speech impaired people.
