Is your club participating in the Peace Poster Contest this year?
The above video is a segment from the October Lions Quarterly (LQ) video magazine. Lions in India partnered with ASA International to provide microfinance loans to women whose families are in need. The goal is to help these women start their own businesses, so they can lift themselves and their families out of poverty. Learn how the program is impacting lives and helping women in India follow their dreams.
How does your Lions club help poverty-stricken families in the community?
During my recent trip to Manila, I visited the Manila (Quirino) Day Care Center, a continuing project of Manila Host Lions Club since 2007. The center caters to 4- to 5-year-old children of poverty-stricken families — preparing the children for a formal education through a fun learning process.
Lions of District 301-A1 organized a Reading Action Program project at the day care center. We distributed school supplies, school bags and story books to the children.
One of my favorite things about traveling to meet Lions everywhere is meeting the children impacted by Lions initiatives. Whether through the Reading Action Program, vision screenings or children’s diabetes camps, Lions work together to ensure the children of this world are happy and healthy, with bright futures ahead.
For every Lion who has volunteered to provide free vision screenings for kids, here is a special story that showcases how important our service work is to helping children and the community.
