THE KIWANIS CLUB OF NORTH ST. ANDREW (JAMAICA)
The Kiwanis Club of North St. Andrew (KCNSA) is a part of the global Kiwanis community of member-volunteers that contribute more than 6 million hours and over US$100 million each year in carrying out its mandate to help change the world for the better, one child and one community at a time. KCNSA has a track record of 37 years of solid service to the children, elderly and less fortunate in Jamaica, the Caribbean and the world. We also sponsor leadership clubs in communities as well as in schools from preparatory/primary to the tertiary level, engendering good citizenship, service, leadership and self-development. The sitting president is Rohan Dawkins.
On the basis of the strength and impact of its service initiatives, KCNSA enjoys excellent relations with corporate Jamaica, benefiting over the years from assistance in funding our volunteer projects. Members, individuals and other well-wishers have also contributed to the cause, but we have been hampered in recent years by reduction in donations due to the downturn in the economy. As such, we have had to be creative in not only seeking donations, but also hosting fund-raisers of one type or the other to fund our volunteer projects.
