Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.
In fulfilling the Kiwanis mission "To serve the children of the world," the Kiwanis Club of Houma offers you the chance to be a part of a global organization with more than 15,000 clubs worldwide and over 600,000 members. Kiwanis provides opportunities for you to participate in many fulfilling ways:
- Leadership Development and Education
- Fellowship Activities (meetings, networking events, social outings)
- Local Service Programs and Charity Events (hands-on work out in the community)
- Fund-Raisers (events organized primarily to raise funds for charity or club projects)
The name 'Kiwanis' was coined from a Native American expression 'Nunc Kee-wanis' meaning 'we trade' or 'we share our talents.' The Kiwanis Club of Houma has been serving the needs of Houma since September 24, 1968.
Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities. No problem is too big or too small. Why? Because working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child a chance to learn, experience, dream, and succeed, great things happen! As Kiwanis clubs and members, we see it everyday!
The Objects Of Kiwanis International
The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the succeeding decades, they have remained unchanged.
- 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 the 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.
