    By Bow (Sopicha) Vongvanij, Buchholz High School Key Club President, Florida District

    In celebration of Eliminate Week, the Buchholz High School Key Club in Florida hosted a booth at Haile’s Arts and Crafts Festival. The booth sold hand-made clay flowers sponsored by Unya’s Clayflower to fundraise for The Eliminate Project.

  • Preparing for Namibia

    Namibia is one of 36 countries that have successfully eliminated maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT). While the deadly disease is no longer a threat, there is an important focus on sustainability efforts and continued education.

    We had the chance to speak with two of the delegates before they take off for the trip of a lifetime. Kris Bowers, Indiana District, and Bill Harrigan, Kentucky-Tennessee District, share insights on the upcoming trip to Namibia.

    What excites you most about the trip to Namibia?

    Kris: I am most excited about seeing our partner organization, UNICEF, in action. We talk about UNICEF as the organization delivering immunizations and educational programming for The Eliminate Project, but most Kiwanis members don’t get to meet ...
