Kiwanis Safe & Healthy Kids

KIwanis Safe and Healthy Kids Campaign for Safe Home, Safe Play, Bicycle Safety & Water Safety

The Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation Safe and Healthy Kids program is dedicated to preventing injuries in children, the number one killer of kids in the United States.

Around the world, a child dies from an unintentional injury every 30 seconds. And millions of children are injured in ways that can affect them for a lifetime.

When a child dies or is seriously injured the lives of families and entire communities are changed forever. But these tragedies don't have to happen. The important thing to remember about preventable injuries is that they are preventable. They often occur in predictable ways and can be completely avoided with the right education, awareness and planning

Our Kiwanis Safe and Healthy Kids program is dedicated to the creation, support, and promotion of projects throughout Ohio.  We have developed quarterly projects on which we encourage Ohio Kiwanis Clubs to focus.   We have developed and gathered resource documents and order forms for each quarterly project.  Each resource, document, or form has information designed for clubs who want to participate in our Safe and Healthy Kids initiatives.    Resources and forms are listed below. 

For any questions you can contact


        Quarterly projects
