Message from the District Governor Cynthia Bender
Thank you for stopping in and visiting the Kansas District Website! Please take a few minutes to use the tabs and check out all the wonderful things going on in the Kansas District. BUT before you do that I want to take a few minutes of your time and fill you in on our Kiwanis clubs and our dreams!
Dreams strengthen creativity. Dreams spark imagination. Dreams power innovation. All children deserve the right to dream.
Kiwanis clubs in every Kansas community ease the barriers that stop the dreaming. Kiwanis clubs take away worries, pain and hardships. Kiwanis clubs provide the opportunity for all children to reach their full potential. Kids need Kiwanis now more than ever before!
In 2016-2017, we energize the dream that every child is happy, healthy, safe & loved.
Hello and Thank you for visiting the Kansas District of Kiwanis.
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers, dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time.
The Kansas District is comprised of 73 Kiwanis clubs consisting of over 1,800 members making a difference in their communities and in the lives of children every day.
Children are priority one in the Kiwanis organization. Through our service projects, fundraising efforts and sponsorship, we dedicate ourselves to help make the world better for the children living here. Through Kiwanis sponsorship we hope to teach children about servant leadership, giving back to their communities and being role models for younger generations to follow.
Kiwanis International is unmatched in programs offering opportunities for young people to grow in leadership skills, experience the joy of serving others and learn more about themselves, their communities and the world. Through these opportunities, youth and young adults become competent, capable and compassionate leaders.
