Lions Club of Bangalore Shikshana
In an endeavor to support the local community children in the field of education, Lions Club of Bangalore Shikshana was formed. LCB Shikshana was installed on 21- July 2013 and a team of professional 9 family members and 3 individuals joined hands to form this club. It was these teams of 21 charter members taken the key initiative to add value to under privileged children in the field of education.
Our motto is to impart good value system to these children, by spending our time in sharing our computer knowledge, language skills, giving special training to teachers. We aim to work closely with corporates with CSR focus and guide them to adopt schools or give donations. We also meet people who are service oriented and take their support to give books, notebooks and uniforms to these under privileged children. We appreciate any volunteers in supporting our community service.

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.
