About Us

Kiwanis' global network includes a dynamic family of clubs, individual supporters, alumni, donors, NGO partners, and corporate sponsors. Every community around the world has an opportunity to participate in or benefit from a Kiwanis experience. Based on a legacy of service, our global network is dedicated to building community and improving lives by providing opportunities for service, fellowship, leadership and philanthropy according to local needs, cultures and member interests.


The Objectives of Kiwanis

  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.

  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships

  • To promote the adoption and application of higher social, business, and professional standards

  • To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.

  • To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities. 

  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.


Serving the children of the world. 

Defining Statement:

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.
