Who We Are

Whenever   a   Lions   Club   gets   together,   problems   get   smaller. And   communities   get   better.   That   is   because   we   help   where   help   is needed, in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy. Our 45,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We are also one of the most effective. We get the job done. We recently: Brought 3,000 volunteers together to build a playground for children of all abilities in California, USA. Fed 60,000 people in a township in South Africa. It's something Lions do there every day. Sent a team of eye surgeons to Honduras to treat more than 100 adults and children. Everywhere   we   work,   we   make   friends.   With   children   who   need   schoolbooks,   with   seniors   who   need   transportation   and   with people   we   may   never   meet.   We   are   led   by   talented,   dedicated   volunteer   leaders   from   around   the   world. And,   we're   supported by the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), which helps to fund Lions humanitarian projects. Lions   Clubs   International   is   the   world’s   largest   service   club   organization.   We   have   1.35   million   members   in   more   than   45,000   clubs worldwide. Lions are everywhere. We’re active men and women in more than 206 countries and geographic areas. Lions   have   a   dynamic   history.   Founded   in   1917,   we   are   best   known   for   fighting   blindness   -   it,s   part   of   our   history   as   well   as   our   work today.   But   we   also   volunteer   for   many   different   kinds   of   community   projects   including   caring   for   the   environment,   feeding   the   hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled. Lions   give   sight.   By   conducting   vision   screenings,   equipping   hospitals   and   clinics,   distributing   medicine   and   raising   awareness   of   eye disease,   Lions   work   toward   their   mission   of   providing   vision   for   all.   We   have   extended   our   commitment   to   sight   conservation   through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness. Lions   serve   youth.   Our   community   projects   often   support   local   children   and   schools   through   scholarships,   recreation   and   mentoring. Internationally,   we   offer   many   programs,   including   the   Peace   Poster   Contest,   Youth   Camps   and   Exchange   and   Lions   Quest.   And   our   Leo Program   provides   personal   development   through   youth   volunteer   opportunities.   There   are   approximately   144,000   Leos   and   5,700   Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide. Lions   award   grants.   Since   1968,   the   Lions   Clubs   International   Foundation   (LCIF)   has   awarded   more   than   US$700   million   in   grants   to support   Lions   humanitarian   projects   around   the   world.   Together,   our   Foundation   and   Lions   are   helping   communities   following   natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction. Lions   are   active.   Our   motto   is,   We   Serve.   Lions   are   part   of   a   global   service   network,   doing   whatever   is   necessary   to   help   our   local communities.
