Founded in 1915, Kiwanis International and its service leadership programs for young people: Circle K, Key Club, Key Leader, Builders Club, K-Kids, Kiwanis Junior and Aktion Club, dedicate more than 19 million volunteer hours and invest $100 million to strengthen communities and serve children annually.
The Kiwanis International family comprises 600,000 adult and youth members and 8,600 clubs in 96 countries and geographic areas. Kiwanis members make their mark by responding to the needs of their communities and pooling their resources to address worldwide issues.
Globally, Kiwanis International was successful in its humanitarian efforts in eliminating iodine deficiency disorders (IDD), through the Worldwide Service Project, a $100+ million campaign in partnership with UNICEF, which began in 1994 and concluded in 2000. It is now embarking, again with UNICEF, on the ELIMINATE project to eliminate Maternal and Neo-natal Tetanus worldwide. For more information about Kiwanis International, please visit www.kiwanis.org.
