Pediatric Trauma
Is Our Major Focus

Did you know?

  • Unintentional injury is the #1 killer of children age 14 and under in the U.S.
  • Unintentional injury kills more children every year than any other cause - including disease, homicide and suicide!
  • 90% of these unintentional injuries can be prevented!

Recognizing the serious need for education and training in the areas of pediatric trauma and injury prevention, the Kiwanis Cal-Nev-Ha Foundation established the Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP) in 1994. Our mission is to develop local projects, which will reduce the number of children in our district who are killed or injured by accidents.

Utilizing the knowledge and expertise of our partner hospitals, the Foundation identifies projects the Kiwanis family can undertake to address the issue of Pediatric Trauma within their communities.

The Kiwanis Cal-Nev-Ha Foundation works closely with our partner hospitals to provide funding to train pediatric doctors, nurses and first responders, to purchase pediatric medical equipment and to expand community outreach programs.

Kiwanis International is a thriving, global organization of service-minded men and women who respond to the unique needs of their communities and address worldwide issues. Volunteers are dedicated to changing the world one child at a time and one community at a time.

Founded in Detroit, Michigan, USA, in 1915 by a group of businessmen, Kiwanis International is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. Today, the entire Kiwanis family has more than 600,000 members in more than 13,000 clubs. Kiwanis clubs serve in 96 countries around the world and achieve what individuals cannot do alone.


Kiwanis clubs assist children, young adults, the aging, and the needy throughout the world .  They work to improve communities and encourage international understanding.

Kiwanis clubs also sponsor Kiwanis-family organizations for young people and adults, including adults with disabilities. Thousands of Kiwanis clubs support Young Children: Priority One - a continuing service program focused on the needs of children, prenatal through age five, with projects in pediatric trauma, safety, child care and early development.

Young Children: Priority One is the ongoing service program of Kiwanis International, addressing the needs of children prenatal through age five. All clubs are urged to carry out at least two projects each year—one addressing a local children’s need and one supporting the Worldwide Service Project to eliminate iodine deficiency disorders.

The Worldwide Service Project - a Kiwanis-family initiative in partnership with UNICEF - aims to virtually eliminate iodine deficiency disorders, the world's leading cause of preventative mental retardation.
