The Kiwanis Club of Windsor, CT is a service organization comprised of caring men and women from all walks of life. Our objective is to bring aid to children in need. The majority of our efforts benefit children in this community. A portion of the funds we raise go to help meet Kiwanis International objectives which focus on the special needs of young children from prenatal development to age five. We serve by sponsoring fund raising activities, which provide monetary support for children’ programs and through personal involvement in the giving of our time and skills.
The Kiwanis Club of Windsor has been actively involved in the Town of Windsor for over 46 years giving out over $80,000 worth of scholarships to Windsor High School Students.

The Eliminate Project Changing the world by saving and protecting mothers and newborns. Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces in a worldwide service project aimed at eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus by the year 2015. This insidious disease takes the life of one baby every nine minutes. The infant’s short lifetime is marked by pain that includes an extreme sensitivity to light, sound, and even physical contact that prevents even a mother’s loving touch.
Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus (MNT):
Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus (MNT):Kills nearly 60,000 newborn children and a significant number of mothers every year Kills one baby every nine minutes. Targets the poorest, most under served women and children on Earth. A donation of less than $2 can protect a mother and her future babies from contracting the deadly tetanus bacteria. A woman who receives 3 doses of the tetanus vaccine is protected for the majority of her childbearing years and passes on her immunity to her newborn. The goal is to save and protect more than 61 million mothers and their infants by raising $110 million over the next 3 years.Kiwanis and UNICEF need your help and support.
