Dear Fellow Kiwanians!
We are starting a new important year in our commitment to the children’s of the Nepal and the world. No one could have imagined or predicted, the length of time COVID-19 has been with us or the overall change that it would make to society to all over the world. As we start to emerge our tenure; important results of COVID has many individuals putting a new value on family, safety and community. We have learned is people are needed to help those that are less fortunate. Even that time Kiwanians have taken that leadership role doing Kiwanis service work and volunteering in their communities.
We are the youngest district of KI but the fastest emerging district of Kiwanis International. Kiwanis introduced in Nepal in 2015. We became a Kiwanis Nation in 2016 continuously we became a Kiwanis Nepal Provisional District in 2017 opened with 10 clubs. KI board approved district status for Kiwanis Nepal and designated as the Nepal district of Kiwanis International (K69) at the meeting held on June 26, 2019 of KI with total 51 clubs and more than 1000 members. Our Founder Governor Mr. Sujan Kumar Shrestha and his team have made it happen and we thankful for that.
We have had an incredible year of growth through new club building and Membership Engagement 2019-20 and 2020-21. Our Immediate Past Governor Mr. Mohan Lamsal had built his history opening the highest no. of Kiwanis Clubs and the highest no. of membership growth in the Kiwanis office year of 2020-21 of Kiwanis International.
We accept the challenge and focus to fulfill it starting from Kiwanis Day. Most of Kiwanis Clubs of Nepal District (K69) did the charity and community service in the KIWANIS DAY OCTOBER 01, 2021. We see how our Kiwanis Clubs have adapted and are still managing to deliver value to their community though providing basic needs, feeding people, scholarships like hygiene kits and a plethora of others charitable projects. Many clubs had their Service Projects with new enthusiasm to their clubs after the pandemic.
The more members we have the more service we can do. It’s as simple as that. Membership is a key element to our changes, as we are a member-based organization that cannot function without those members and their leaders. It’s not easy but our team and myself already opened more than 26 clubs with more than 450 new members. We focused on SLP Programs as well. Still we are trying our best to make the wonderful KI officer year 2021-22.
Kiwanis Children’s Fund Nepal is moving well with some very important activities and fund raising events.
Let’s continue to discover great people who work for their communities, for the Children.
