About Kiwanis


Kiwanis is a global organisation 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 happen! 

Global Results
