Welcome Message from District Governor - October 2016
Dear Kiwanis Leaders,
In the coming administrative year 2016-17, we plan to Energize the Dream that every child is Happy, Healthy, Safe and Loved.
Dreams strengthen creativity, dreams spark imagination and dreams power innovation. All children deserve the right to dream.
Kiwanis clubs in every community should erase the barriers that stop the dreams from happening.
Kiwanis clubs can take away worries, pain and hardships and provide the opportunity for all children to reach their full potential. Kids Need Kiwanis now more than ever before.
Since 1915, Kiwanians have devoted themselves to create a better world for the children through service projects and programs to our communities. Our service projects and good works during the past 40 years in Malaysia are part of that legacy.
As we prepare for the children and communities we serve to flourish long into the next 100 years, Kiwanis International is introducing the Kiwanis I-Plan, our strategic plan where we will thrive for years to come as a positive force for good in the world.
In 2016-17 Kiwanis Malaysia’s I -Plan will focus on the following areas:-

Dear brothers and sisters, we need your altruistic support and passionate participation in the I-Plan in order to accomplish our 2016-17 Goals and spur our Clubs & District to greater heights. We are dedicated to serving one child and one community at a time.
Our Formula team under the leadership of Dato' Fatimah Saad with 20 Club Openers & Counsellors are fully trained and ready to support new club building and help clubs strengthen their membership. Our Service Leadership Program Chair, Dr Laurence and his team is fully equipped and ready to support your clubs ambition in starting a K-Kids, Key Club or Circle K in your community.
Real happiness doesn't come from getting everything you want. I believe it comes from sharing what we have with the people who matter. Your altruistic support and passionate participation is highly appreciated.
Kids Need Kiwanis. Love it. Share it. Live it.
Yours in Kiwanis
Vincent Ho District Governor 2016-17
