Open a child’s mind to reading—all year long

Every child should experience the joy of reading. Kiwanis members believe this, and have long been dedicated to Kiwanis International’s Read Around the World program.

What used to be a monthlong observance is now a focus for the whole year, giving the entire Kiwanis family of clubs the chance to implement Read Around the World projects at any time.

More reading projects touch more children’s lives.

Kiwanis’ Read Around the World program focuses on sharing the joy of books with children—from reading with them to getting them books they can have for their very own.

If you’re interested in learning more about the Read Around the World program, or how you can help get books to children who need them most, contact the Georgia District office.



Attention: New this year, clubs that participate in Read Around the World should report the events on the online monthly report form. This helps Kiwanis track and measure service projects, participation, and help improve our programs. However, if you are requesting a banner patch, please note that you should complete the online banner patch form. Patches will be sent only once per year, on or around October 1. For clubs that also participate and request banner patches for Kiwanis One Day and Young Children Priority One projects, patches will be sent at that time too.
