Kiwanis is making history

The Eliminate Project is a Kiwanis-family effort. From the youngest K-Kid to the oldest Kiwanis member, we’re making a difference in the fight to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. During the last five years, The Eliminate Project has raised US$110 million in cash and pledges to support UNICEF’s work.

As of March 23, 2016, The Eliminate Project has raised US$53.1 million in cash—nearly 50 percent of our fundraising goal. Eighteen districts showed their support through district-wide commitments, including Key Club International’s commitment to raise US$3 million.

The active fundraising phase of The Eliminate Project concluded on December 31, 2015. But the timeline has been extended to the end of the school year for members of Service Leadership Program clubs, which include Key Club.

But we are not yet finished. Now it’s time to turn pledges into paid gifts. The fulfillment phase of The Eliminate Project is crucial to the global elimination of MNT. That is why we need the help of Kiwanis-family members everywhere to complete individual, club and district pledges.

We made a promise—and we will fulfill it. Help the Kiwanis family help mothers and babies. You can support The Eliminate Project in the name of Key Club International. In fact, you can designate a club to receive credit when you make your secure online gift—just note the club name.

The Kiwanis family is poised to change the world. Be a part of history.

Campaign elimination status

Out of 59 priority countries, 38 have officially eliminated MNT. Currently, 21 countries are still at risk for MNT.

  • Niger plans to conduct a validation survey in June 2016.
  • Haiti plans to conduct a pre-validation assessment in 2016.
  • Democratic Republic of the Congo will conduct pre-validation assessments in the third quarter of 2016.
  • Indonesia’s Papua province will conduct a pre-validation assessment in May.

Together we can do it.  

Be a part of it—and make a difference together with your Kiwanis-family! Give now.
