Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.  

The Capital District of Kiwanis International (composed of all the clubs in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia) was organized on August 29, 1918 with only two clubs. Now 96 years later, the Capital District remains active with 6 regions, 17 divisions and 155 clubs.

What if you could save a baby's life?

With The Eliminate Project, you can. Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) kills one baby every nine minutes. But three doses of a 60-cent vaccine can protect mothers and babies. Kiwanis and UNICEF have joined forces to bring this vaccine to 38 countries, eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. What can you do right now? Learn about MNT and advocate for the cause. Participate in our fundraisers. Over the next few years, the work we do will change the world. Find out more at www.TheEliminateProject.org.
