Kiwanis International European Federation

Serving the children of the World.


For the first time the Kiwanis clubs of Limburg organized a KIWANIS KIDS DAY. For the first time and under the impulse of Belgium-Luxembourg Governor Marie-Paule Bollen, the Kiwanis clubs of Limburg in Belgium organized a KIWANIS KIDS DAY this summer. The beautiful Open-Air Museum of Bokrijk was the perfect setting for a fantastic day for socially deprived children between 6 and 12 years. Guided by Kiwanis volunteers, 175 children participated in different workshops: they learned how to make bread, candles, pottery and many more. Real craftsmen and craftswomen showed them how these products were made hundreds of years ago and all participants had the opportunity to get hands-on experience. The University of Hasselt delegated its most creative students who created 2 nice search routes in the park.  At noon, there was a delicious picnic with the opportunity to take some rest or to play in the big playground at the domain.
Miss Zuhal Demir, Federal Secretary of State for Equal Opportunities and the Fight against Poverty, and Deputy Philtjens, responsible for Culture and Tourism, came by and congratulated the organizers for this great initiative. Both public figures expressed their support and confirmed that the service club Kiwanis can in the future continue to organize this wonderful event in the park of Bokrijk.
The Kiwanis Kids Day Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all Kiwanis volunteers, all sponsors, the University of Hasselt, and of course the management and the staff of the domain Bokrijk.  But above all, it was the commitment of all members of the working group “Kiwanis Kids Day” that ensured the success of this beautiful day where all the participating children had a great time and experienced plenty of joy. And now let’s already look to next year and aim for an even more successful 2nd edition of the Kiwanis Kids Day in Limburg!
