Helping Kids at Risk through Tourism

The Canberra Lions in Australia are turning tourism into a way to help kids at risk. They have funded the Westwood Lodge, a new 70 bed hostel that provides accommodations for school, sports and community groups visiting Canberra. Revenue from the hostel will go back to kids in the community, helping to finance Lions programs for young people at risk.

Today’s Lions success story was sent to us through the Submit a Photo page on the LCI website. Do you have a story to share? Let Lions everywhere know how your club is making an impact in your community!
