Our Expanding Focus Areas

 

Vision

We are a world leader in the effort to prevent avoidable blindness, and we’re diligently working with Lions clubs and local partners to help provide the local capacity building, training, medications and treatment needed for those with eye diseases and to provide disability rehabilitation and education for all.

Youth

We are committed to providing youth and young adults with opportunities to succeed. The Lions Quest program provides young people and their educators with tools to make positive choices, resist drugs and alcohol, learn through service and become healthy young men and women.

Disaster Relief

When disaster strikes, we respond. We provide funding to address preparedness and immediate needs that allow Lions and their partners to be among the first on the scene in the wake of the world’s most devastating hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and other disasters.

Humanitarian

Lions take action in their communities, working face-to-face with the people they serve. We support the wide variety of humanitarian efforts implemented and coordinated by Lions and give grants to increase their scale and effectiveness.

Diabetes

We are providing support to help Lions educate the public and establish programs around one of our new global focus areas: diabetes.

Childhood Cancer

Across the globe, too many children are being affected by cancer. We’re helping Lions establish programs and provide greater service and access to care for those diagnosed—giving hope to them and their families.

The Environment

We are working with Lions to preserve our planet, knowing that the health of our local communities and environments affects us all. Our goal is to help establish a sustainable future for generations to come.

Hunger

We help provide healthy meals for the hungry and work to establish strategies and greater capacity for communities in which food is scarce.
