Sleeping Children Around the World
Working together to make the world a better place. This is what Aktion Club members are striving to do one project at a time. Aktion Club members have united together in an effort to support an international Service Initiative.
The focus of the Aktion Club Service Initiative is Sleeping Children Around the World, a nonprofit organization located in Toronto, Ontario.
The mission of SCAW is to provide bed kits to children in need throughout the developing world. This is carried out through free-will donations and partnerships with volunteers around the globe. A bed kit donation of $37 provides a mat or mattress, pillow, sheet, blanket, mosquito net (if applicable), clothes outfit, towel and school supplies.
Kiwanis family members are asked to support this initiative by making monetary donations to Aktion Clubs for Sleeping Children Around the World.
The following resources have been created to assist in educating both Kiwanis family members and the community about the Aktion Club Service Initiative. Take a moment to view what’s available. If you need copies of these items please contact Kiwanis International Membership Department at 1-800-KIWANIS, ext. 411 and place an order.
