Do good, feel good
Are you looking for ways to get to know people in your community? To connect with others—and get involved in projects that change lives? Then you’ve come to the right place. The Kiwanis of Naples is all about making friends—and making an impact—in your local community.
Each of the Clubs in this Division are part of the International Kiwanis Family made up of more than 600,000 Kiwanis-family members in 80 Nations who respond to the needs of their communities and willingly pool their resources to address worldwide issues. Through these efforts, our club and the Kiwanis-family truly are "Serving the Children of the World."
All of the members view their role within the community with a great deal of dedication and enthusiasm. Key aspects to operating our club include:
Evaluating both children’s issues and community needs on an ongoing basis. <br> Conducting service projects to respond to those identified needs. <br> Maintaining an active membership roster including professional business people, snowbirds with dual membership from out of our area, and anyone who have both the desire and the ability to serve their community. <br> Offering an atmosphere of fun, learning, service, and fellowship. <br> Service projects often are linked to the Kiwanis program, “Young Children: Priority One.” This initiative places continuing focus on the needs of children in pediatric trauma, safety, child care, early development, infant health, nutrition, and parenting skills.
Service projects also can address other needs within the community, such as working to stop substance abuse, Habitat for Humanity, helping the elderly, promoting literacy, supporting youth sports and recreation, responding to disasters, and supporting specific persons in need. <br> Kiwanis also plays a special role in developing future generations of leaders.
The following are all supported by the local Kiwanis Clubs, K-Kids : clubs at the elementary school level, Builders Clubs in middle school and junior highs, Key Clubs in high schools, and Circle K clubs at the collegiate level. All are Kiwanis organizations that teach community service and leadership skills to young people.
Kiwanis and UNICEF joined forces to tackle iodine deficiency disorders, achieving one of the most significant public health successes of the 20th century. Now, in the ELIMINATE Project, they are joining forces to eliminate Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus (MNT) from the face of the Earth. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take US$110 million - and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family. The end of this one disease means the beginning of better health for so many families.
