Welcome to the official web site for the Kiwanis Club of Aruba!

At the Kiwanis Club of Aruba, we strive to fulfill the Kiwanis vision of changing the world, one child and one community at a time. On February 20, 2015 we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary serving the community of Aruba especially the children. Through the participation of our members, we've helped to educate our children, support our community, and establish ourselves as the premier service organization on Aruba. Here on our web site, you can find out about how we're working to accomplish this mission and why, at Kiwanis, our motto is, "Serving the Children of the World!"

Our yearly service activities include: Annual Children Day Party, Elderly Christmas Party, Traffic Awareness campaign, Kite Flying contest for the Youth, Smile Maker project, Back to School for the kids, Kamishibai story telling method for pre-elementary and elementary schools and the Clint Whitfield Outstanding Student Awards for students of Colegio Arubano.

Our main fundraising activities are our Annual Charity Golf Tournament on March 18th and at the end of September our annual 'Wine Gala' fundraising party.

We hope you enjoy our site and that you return often to keep track of our activities!

  

“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal”

Albert Pike

 

“Life’s most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?”

Martin Luther King Jr.

 

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.
  1. To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
  2. To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
  3. To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.
  4. To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
  5. To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.
  6. To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
