UNICEF, the only organization of the United Nations dedicated exclusively to children, works with other United Nations bodies, governments and non-governmental organizations to assist in children’s needs through community-based services in primary health care, basic education, and safe water and sanitation in more than 150 developing countries. UNICEF shares the Kiwanis family’s global commitment to children and has provided its extensive resources and leadership to assist in the Worldwide Service Project to virtually eliminate Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) from the globe.
How Key Club helps
Since 1994, Key Club has been Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF. Created, inspired and powered by kids since 1950, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has empowered generations to make lasting change in their global community. Over the years, Key Clubbers have raised nearly $5 million for iodine deficiency programs worldwide, HIV and AIDS programs in Kenya and Swaziland and most recently Operation Uruguay: Protecting the Rights of Children. This year, all funds raised by Key Clubs through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF will go to The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus.
