Chartered on 11th April 2011 and Inducted on 14th May 2011, We are the locale of the ancient and historical city of the country of Mount Everest, Nepal. We come from various walks of our lives as others do but eversince we heard about the Lions Clubs Internationl and its motto, we undoubtedly found ourselves motivated by the slogan, "We Serve". And to serve our community through whatever we can, we have joined our hands together and come together in a club named Lions Club of Bhaktapur Golden Gate.
As the Golden Gate of Bhaktapur city is famous all over the world for its majestic art and glittering craft, we promise to keep the glory of the Golden Gate within our projects, our visions and above all, our services.
Our First Project was a Rabies Vaccination Camp for the street and domestic dogs which was jointly run with Bhaktapur Animal Welfare Society. About 210 dogs were given the vaccines. This was a first small step towards our next venture yet to be accomplished. We believe in serving the community with everyway will help the motto of LCI.
