Formula & Strategy

Inspiration, Impact, Image, Investement – these “I-words” gave our strategy it’s name: the Kiwanis I-Plan. The I-Plan also includes terms like Innovation, Imagine. And last but ot least it’s about statements of our members. Like “I am Kiwanis”, “I am a community leader” and  “I am committed to the children in my community and the world”.
