Service Oriented
As one of more than 1.4 million men and women active in more than 43,000 Lions Clubs around the world, every Lion is dedicated to community service and improvement. 
The work of Lions since 1917 has resulted in :
  • The Creation of SightFirst; a worldwide blindness prevention program that aims to eliminate preventable blindness and reversible blindness worldwide.
  • Establishment and operation of a majority of the world's eye banks, resulting in approximately 10,000 sight-restoring cornea transplants every year.
  • Development of the Lions-Quest curricula which have provided millions of young people with the tools to make responsible decisions regarding drugs, alcohol and threats to a healthy future.
  • Hospitals, clinics, playgrounds, parks and thousands of facilities that enhance day-to-day life in our communities.
  • Service to blind, including dog guides, white canes and a wide variety of employment opportunities and vocational training.
  • Immediate disaster relief and support for rebuilding efforts.
  • Leos clubs, youth exchange and youth camps that help instill a philosophy of service in young people around the world.
