#LDUN Spotlight on Gender Equality and Lions Quest

“They can be what they want to be and not try to fit into the stereotype that has been created for them by parents and society.” – Ratna Choudhry, Lions Quest Senior Trainer and confirmed speaker for the 2016 Lions Day with the United Nations, regarding young girls in today’s world

On March 12, 2016, Lions, United Nations diplomats and other key representatives will join at UN headquarters in New York City to discuss targeted humanitarian challenges during the 38th Annual Lions Day with the United Nations (LDUN). This year’s theme is “Gender Equality and Peace.”

Among many topics to be discussed at LDUN is youth, and how future generations are affected by and addressing the issues of gender equality and peace as they develop into tomorrow’s leaders. Lions Quest, an LCIF life skills and youth development program, prepares youth for success by empowering students to make positive decisions. The program has reached more than 13 million young people across the globe. As it continues to expand, so do opportunities to include gender equality in Lions Quest curriculum – giving young girls and boys the resources and confidence they need to know they can succeed in today’s world regardless of gender.
