  • Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink... World Water Day 2016

    Imagine living in a country where you had to travel miles to reach clean drinking water. 

    Imagine spending most of your days collecting and carrying water back to your family. 

    Imagine living without access to a proper toilet. 

    For many people these aren't just scenarios on a computer screen. This is life. 783 million people do not have access to clean and safe water. That's roughly the populations of the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Canada, Colombia and France combined. They don't have the luxury of turning on a faucet in their house and filling a glass with water to drink. Many people, mostly women and girls, spend up to 6 hours a day fetching water for their families. What we take for granted, they give up jobs and education for each day. 

    World Water Day is held annually on March 22 as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. It's also a time for you to bring this serious issue to the forefront on your campus. 

    We've compiled some statistics and project ideas your club can do right on your campus. Feel free to use our ideas and even come up with a few ideas of your own. Be sure to pay attention to CKI social media on March 22 to learn more about the water crisis around the globe.

  • US$9,000 in Tomorrow Fund Grants Awarded

    Twenty-nine Tomorrow Fund Grant Applications were submitted for the 2015-16 funding cycle. A review committee consisting of members of the CKI Service Committee reviewed each of the 29 applications from clubs and districts around the globe before narrowing down the recipients to the 14 finalists. Applications are reviewed to ensure each selected project conforms to the policies of Circle K International. 

    The committee then determined the amount of funding each recipient is awarded based on the budget submitted by the club or district and the amount of funding requested. Clubs and districts could request funding assistance from US$200 to US$2000. The committee typically funds those clubs or districts asking for a portion of the total cost of the project, and clubs or districts who are working with other organizations to fund and complete projects. In the end, the committee granted US$9,000 in funds. 

    Twelve CKI clubs and two districts received notification February 1, 2016  informing them that they had been awarded a Tomorrow Fund Grant. Projects include expanding a gardening program at a local elementary school, a food backpack program, animal rescue, and repairing the facilities at a local day care center. Each project allows the club or district to take action and tackle service projects on their campus or in their communities.  The grant recipients represent nine districts and one CKI nation. 

    The Tomorrow Fund is an endowed fund for Circle K International held within the Kiwanis International Foundation. The Tomorrow Fund is financed through a portion of CKI member dues, direct donations, the donation of Carthage-Pullman Society memberships and the donation of Sapphire Circle honoraries. The fund, utilizing the interest earned, helps CKI clubs and districts serve the world through grants for service opportunities.
