Lionism is a spirit within Lions Clubs where members feel the need to help solve recognized problems and needs of the community through use of their own resources. The clubs are non-political and non-sectarian groups of persons from all facets of community life who work to enhance cooperation among all agencies and organizations to meet and alleviate needs not only in their own country but also in over 200 countries throughout the world.

In Kakira Sugar, the spirit and philosophy of lionism was introduced by the Madhvani family in 1950’s.

The Late Mr. Jayant Madhvani together with Mr. Mayur Madhvani and Mr. Nikesh Madhvani are the MJ members of the club.
