Have a good look at the people around you: family, friends, colleagues and business partners. You will probably realise that you owe them a lot. Personal achievement and happiness may have been largely your own doing, but without support of the others you would have gotten nowhere. The age of pure individualism fortunately lies behind us: you may participate to society again, put something back. And that is exactly what Kiwanis does: provide support to those who really need it.

Nunc Kee-wanis, you read it right, "we let ourselves be known", is a direct translation from Ochipew, one of the native languages of North America. This Amerindian phrase may sound incomprehensible, but for Kiwanis, it represents a clear message. Because we have a clear message too.
