As one of the three tenets, service is a fundamental element of CKI. Collectively, CKI members perform more than one million house of service on their campuses and in their communities annually. Without service, CKI would be just another campus activity. Through service, college students are making the world a better place. Every year CKI pursues a different mission under the title of the District Service Project.
The Service Committee of the District Board thinks of various potential projects for the DSP then presents them to the District for voting. Finally, the winning project is presented at District Convention.

WASH: Water, Sanitation, Hygiene
CKI is excited to announce a new five-year signature project, in partnership with UNICEF, called WASH.
WASH is the collective term for Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene. WASH aims to provide education, awareness, and funding to supply clean drinking water and sanitation education to schools and children in underdeveloped regions.
Since 1990, UNICEF and partners have played a key role as 2.6 billion people gained access to safe drinking water. Still, nearly 1,000 children die every day due to a lack of safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene.
Our signature project efforts will target Haiti’s emergency needs to reach 200,000 people in cholera-affected areas with a complete WASH response package, supporting emergency water access interventions for 70,000 people in drought-affected areas, and providing 60,000 internally displaced people with alternative sustainable sanitation strategies.
