Kiwanis Club of Sendai, Inc., Children's Fund
Kiwanis is one of the three major global volunteer organizations, with over 8,000 clubs spread throughout the world in over 80 countries.
With its motto "Serving the Children of the World", the major service activities of Kiwanis are for children with special emphasis on young children.
The Kiwanis Club of Sendai was established on June 23, 1971 as the sixth Kiwanis club in Japan, and has a long tradition of service activities.
After the devastating earthquake and tsunami disasters in Eastern Japan, the club decided to establish its "Children's Fund" to provide mid-and-long term help to those children who experienced extreme hardships, in collaboration with the Bikki Organization Miyagi.
We would appreciate your understanding of and cooperation with the service activities of the Kiwanis Club of Sendai and its Children's Fund.
