The Objects of Kiwanis
Through Kiwanis membership, individuals give their talent, time, and love
to those in need. More than 600,000 Kiwanians and K-family members
worldwide dedicate themselves to a way of life in which they believe.
The name Kiwanis stems from a North American Indian phrase, which, like many aboriginal terms, had a variety of meanings, including; “We have a good time,” “We make a noise,” or “We trade.”
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.
