What all Lions DO

Lions Clubs – Ready to Help, Worldwide

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 and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.

The World's Largest Service Club Organization

Our 46,000 clubs and 1.4 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.

In  India in 1928, Gandhi laid the cornerstone of a school for blind, deaf and disabled students in Ahmedabad. That original building is still in use today. A year and a half ago, I laid the cornerstone for a new building at that school. During my latest trip to India, I was lucky enough to stand beside International President Yamada as he officially opened the new building.
