From a fraternal business club in the early 1900s, Kiwanis International has grown into a worldwide organization working to change the world, one child and one community at a time. Early in their history, group leaders realized that success could only come by incorporating community service into their business models. The name Kiwanis comes from the native American phrase ‘NunKee-wan-is’ meaning “We have a good time… we make noise,” and today Kiwanis is making noise in communities across the world by organizing projects that focus on community needs such as helping the elderly, supporting athletics and encouraging literacy.
