Serving The Children of the World

Welcome to Moorabbin Kiwanis

On January 21st 2015, Kiwanis International turned 100. It took a long time for Kiwanis to expand outside North America, but on 20th July 1970,the Kiwanis Club of Moorabbin was chartered, and has been serving the needs of the citizens of Glen Eira, Bayside and Kingston (formerly the City of Moorabbin) for all of those years,

Our members are currently working for Heartkids Australia, Special Olympics and RDA etc, but have been involved in projects as diverse as a scented garden for the blind, a children's playground, a retirement village, plus painting, gardening, cooking sausages etc. All aimed at helping someone in need, particularly Children.

Kiwanis International has recently adopted a new branding campaign "Kids need Kiwanis".

The following link may explain this more: Kids need Kiwanis brand.

Now Kiwanis International has another world project "Eliminate", that will Eliminate Maternal Neonatal Tetanus from the earth, and Moorabbin Kiwanis is already a Model Club, having raised US$750 per member for Eliminate.

In support of the Kiwanis Children's Fund, the Kiwanis Club of Moorabbin has achieved Blue-level Today Club status for the 2015–16 Kiwanis year.

That means our club’s unrestricted gifts to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund reached a per-member giving average of US$10.
