“We Serve”

International Organization Profile

The Lions are an international network of 1.3 million men and women in 205  countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that  challenge communities around the world. Since Helen Keller threw down the gauntlet in 1925, the primary objective for  the Lions has been the conservation and restoration of sight. Known for working to end preventable blindness, Lions participate in a vast  variety of projects important to their communities. These projects range from  cleaning up local parks to providing supplies to victims of natural disasters. Beginning in 1917, the association of Lions clubs has provided millions of  people with the opportunity to give something back to their communities. View LQ  (Lions Quarterly Video Magazine) on the Lions News Network to see how Lions  continue to make a difference everyday and everywhere.
