Lions Club of Ahmedabad Professionals was started with a motto to serve the society by active professionals (Chartered Accountants, Lawyers, Entrepreneurs, Business professionals, Engineers and Doctors) who have got the passion to give back to the community through their experience and knowledge.
Our Lioness Program provides social activities towards women empowerment, women health, education and self-reliance. Lioness Club of Ahmedabad Professionals is contributing to serve several handicapped organizations like “Apang Manav Mandir”, “Prakash Andhjan Mandal”, “Vikas Gruh”, “Utthan Talim Kendra” and “Bhagwan Das Kanya Gruh”.
Melvin Jones - Founder of Lions Movement
Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief - to serve their community.
Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, 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.
Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.
Lions help during disasters. 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.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
