Lions Club – Ready to Help, Worldwide
Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world. Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world’s largest service club organization. We’re also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet. We perform community service in 208 countries and geographic areas – are different in many ways, but share a core belief: community is what we make it. We have more volunteers doing more community work in more places than any service club organization.
When you join Lions, you join a global service network. So, at the same time you’re doing local community service, you can also contribute to Lions volunteer efforts around the world.
Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That’s because we help where help is needed – in our own communities around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy. When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve. Our volunteer projects unite Lions around the world. And our work is unconditional. We are not limited by continents nor are we restricted to certain causes. Lions help wherever, whenever, and however we can. Because we’re local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities we live in. Because we’re global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders.
Our mission is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace, and promote international understanding through Lions Clubs. Known for working to end preventable blindness, Lions participate in a vast variety of projects important to their communities. These projects range from cleaning up local parks to providing supplies to victims of natural disasters. Lions Clubs International is an international network of 1.35 million dedicated men and women in over 200 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.
