The Kiwanis Club of Little Havana
Once upon a fun 70s summer, a group of Miami kids decided to start an affiliate of Kiwanis International. They wanted to be heard. They wanted to be different. They wanted to change the world.
The Kiwanis Club of Little Havana organizes Carnaval Miami, including the world-famous Calle Ocho Music Festival and Carnaval on the Mile proceeds benefit the Kiwanis of Little Havana Foundation.
Today, the economic impact of Carnaval Miami extends to $40M, ever year. Its community impact is priceless! The Kiwanis of Little Havana funds programs that change children’s lives, from sports leagues to summer camps, the distribution of school supplies, college scholarships, and help in unforeseeable family situations.
Kiwanis empowers communities to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children.
THE KIWANIS VISION
Kiwanis will be a positive influence in communities worldwide—so that one day, all children will wake up in communities that believe in them, nurture them and provide the support they need to thrive.
KIWANIS OF LITTLE HAVANA FOUNDATION
The Kiwanis Club of Little Havana established the Kiwanis of Little Havana Foundation in 1987 to assist the financially underserved Hispanic youth of Miami-Dade County. Since it’s inception, the Foundation has provided thousands of children each year with the opportunity to learn, dream, grow, succeed, and thrive through education, technology, health, and overall goodwill programs.
