Kiwanis Selects Three Finalists for Worldwide Service Project
Date:2/1/2010

Proposed projects will combat global diseases

INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Kiwanis International is searching for its next global cause, and its International Board of Trustees has selected three Worldwide Service Project finalists: Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases for their Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) proposal; Malaria No More and the Canadian Red Cross for their joint malaria proposal; and UNICEF for its proposal on maternal and neonatal tetanus.

"The three remaining proposals are extremely impressive," said Kiwanis International President Paul Palazzolo. "Any one of them would make a great Worldwide Service Project, and each would significantly improve the lives of millions of children around the world."

Last fall, Kiwanis received nearly 200 Worldwide Service Project proposals. Earlier this month, the board heard presentations on four potential projects.

"Today, we begin engaging our members in the discussion on Kiwanis' next Worldwide Service Project," Palazzolo said. "By visiting www.kiwanis.org/wsp, our 600,000 adult and youth members have the opportunity to view each proposal and participate in an online discussion forum."

The website and discussion forum will be available in eight languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Japanese and Chinese.  

The Kiwanis International Board will announce the next Worldwide Service Project at the Kiwanis International Convention in Las Vegas, NV, in June.
