Where there is need there is lions, we always think globally and work locally because we are global leaders in Services. We are the largest service club organization in the world. Our 1.4 million members perform valuable service in 210 countries and geographic areas around the globe.
Since Helen Keller challenged Lions to become “Knights of the Blind” in 1925, Since then Lions Clubs International have improved eye health and eye care for hundreds of millions of people around the world. Today, 80% of vision impairments are preventable or curable, so our service is more important than ever before. Lions and Leos screen vision, educate our communities, build clinics and support the blind and visually impaired through assistive technology and vocational training programs.
This year we are celebrating hundred years of service and we have added few new health issues of the world that need to be addressed as soon as possible. So Lions Clubs around the world are working together to fight agains major five Service areas as Centennial Service Challenge. They are Vision, Diabetes, Pediatric Cancer, Environment and Hunger Relief.
Our core mission is “We serve” with the goal of tripling our humanitarian impact by serving 200 million people per year by 2021. The Global Service Framework complements all of the great ways clubs serve locally, and gives Lions and Leos new opportunities to help meet the growing challenges facing humanity.
