What is Kiwanis?

No, we are not an airline (That’s Quantas) We are a service organization that helps kids. Here is a quick video that explains what Kiwanis is.

Kiwanis is a global organization of member-volunteers who are dedicated to improving the world, one child, and one community at a time.

Kiwanis members dedicate more than 18 million volunteer hours and invest more than US$107 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!

Each year, clubs

     • Organize nearly 150,000 service projects
    • Dedicate more than 19 million volunteer hours
    • Raise more than US$133 million


     • More than 8,500 clubs in 80 nations
