Photo of the Week: Lions in Nepal Increase Visibility with Elephant Soccer

Promoting our clubs and informing our neighbors that our clubs are here to help are key components to healthy, sustainable clubs. In Nepal, Lions coordinated an elephant soccer tournament to promote their work as well as tourism in the region.

Multiple District 325 coordinated the two-day festival in Sauraha, Chitwan, and different community organizations sponsored each of the four soccer-playing elephants. An elephant beauty contest followed where officials judged the animals based on their cat walk, attire and health.

    I am proud and privileged to inform you that for the first time in the history of Lions Clubs International, the Elephant Football Tournament has been participated by Lions. We have become successful in winning the tournament, which I think gave lots of mileage in social marketing not only in Nepal, but also in other parts of the world.

    SEAGRAMS Group of companies have sponsored the program.

    Thanking you,
    Uttam Kayastha,
