Lions and Leos save Sight. Since Helen Keller challenged Lions to become knights of the Blind in 1925, we have improved eye health care for hundreds of people around the world. Today 80% of vision impairments are preventable or curable, so our service is more important than ever before.

ENVIRONMENT & CLIMATE CHANGE

LIONISTIC YEAR 2019 – 2020

We live in a space that is prone to natural disasters each year. Some arears are harder hit that others. However, we have all felt the impact of the devastating effects of the annual hurricane seasons in one way or the other.

As Lions we need to always be prepared to spring into action wherever and whenever the need arises. There is the issue of proper solid waste management and it’s far reaching implications for the countries within our District. In Jamaica alone, 8,657 tonnes of solid waste is produced per day according to the National Environment and Planning Agency.

PARENTING & YOUTH

PARENTING & YOUTH

LIONISTIC YEAR 2019 – 2020
The District Governor’s focus area of Parenting & Youth is directly related to the future of District 60B. While parenting and youth may be considered two separate areas of focus, the commonality is family. The District Governor recognizes that family units are important – as independent units and collectively. This Lionistic year all Clubs will have the opportunity to engage and educate parents and youth within their communities with meaningful projects.

Drug abuse is a growing threat to the Caribbean Regions children and as a result its future.

The Caribbean’s youth and adolescent have been identified as being most vulnerable to the growing problem of substance use and abuse.
