Kiwanis is a global
organization of member-volunteers working to
change the world, one child and one
community at a time.
Kiwanis members dedicate more than 6 million
volunteer hours and invest more than US$100
million annually in projects that strengthen
communities and serve children. We help
shelter the homeless, feed the hungry,
mentor the disadvantaged and care for the
sick. We develop youth as leaders, build
playgrounds, raise funds for pediatric
research and much more. We believe that
helping a child helps the world.
Working together, Kiwanis members achieve
what one person cannot accomplish alone.
When you give a child a chance to learn,
experience, dream and succeed, great things
Since 1994, Kiwanis
