Kiwanis Malaysia District

The 48th District of Kiwanis International, Malaysia District is headed by a Governor and a Board of Trustees to support Kiwanis Clubs throughout the country.  There are seven (7) Lieutenant Governors, each of whom takes charge of a Division, where there are 5 to 10 Clubs per Division.

The first Club was formed on 11 April 1976 through the pioneering initiative of the late Tan Sri Mohd Khir Johari, who was a Cabinet Minister at that time. Fondly known as “Bapa Kiwanis”, Tan Sri Khir Johari was the Charter President of the Kiwanis Club of Kuala Lumpur. Today there are more than 50 Kiwanis Clubs nationwide, with a membership of 1,300 Malaysians. 

Kiwanis Malaysia achieved its District-in-formation status back in October 2000 and subsequently was officially conferred District status in March 2003.

Members of Kiwanis Clubs come from every walk of life, united in their regard of service to the community as one of their core values.  From homemakers to the corporate and public sectors, colleges and universities, Kiwanians are young individuals embarking on careers, successful executives, as well as active retirees.

Kiwanians are active volunteers committed to making a difference in issues affecting the local and global 
community with special emphasis on programmes for the well-being of children. 

In line with the motto of Kiwanis International: “Serving the Children of the World”, the Kiwanis movement 
in Malaysia has embarked on a bold strategy of catering to the educational and personal development needs of children and youth who are disadvantaged or face special challenges, through a combination of short-term and permanent long-term service projects.
