SERVING FROM THE HEART WITH KINDNESS

DISTRICT PROGRAMME

Clubs are not expected to engage in all areas.
Areas must be chosen based on the Clubs context and the needs of the communities they service.

Diabetes

The International Diabetes Foundation reports 1 in 2 persons with diabetes is undiagnosed. Lions see and feel the effects of diabetes in the communities we serve and have championed this Cause to reduce its prevalence and improve the quality of life of those diagnosed.

Vision

Lions have a long history of serving the blind and visually impaired since the challenge from Hellen Keller to our Organization in 1925 to become ‘Knights of the Blind.’ More than 75% of all blindness is avoidable. 89% of people with visual impairment live in developing countries. We remain committed to being “shining lights” of hope in the communities we serve.

Hunger & Homelessness

The number of adults and children around the world facing the dire consequences of the lack of proper nutritious foods and/or inadequate places of shelter is rapidly increasing. 800 million people around the world go to bed hungry every night. Now more than ever, the involvement of Lions in mobilizing hunger efforts and food collection initiatives in our communities is critical in helping to reduce the number of families affected by hunger and homelessness.

Environment& Climate Change

Our environment is more than a backdrop of nature. It is our home. Lions have seen how our stewardship of natural resources can make a positive difference in our world. Many of our local communities are suffering the devastating impact of more frequent natural disasters. Lions are committed to collaborating with stakeholders at increasing awareness of disaster preparedness measures to protect our vulnerable populations.

Childhood Cancer

Cancer is a leading cause of death for children and adolescents around the world. 300,000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year. Lions and Leos provide support for the needs of children and families affected by childhood cancer through impactful service activities because we strongly believe that every child deserves an opportunity for a brighter future. We CARE.

Leo Club Program

Global Membership Approach (GMA)

Where there’s a need, there’s a Lion. When our membership grows, our communities grow. Our service strengthens. Our future brightens.

The Global Membership Approach equips Districts to develop membership through a strategic process focused on:

  • Rejuvenating Districts with new Clubs
  • Revitalizing Clubs with new members
  • Re-motivating existing members with fellowship and exciting service

In order to strengthen and grow our membership across District 60B, a minimum of 20 Clubs will be partaking in this Program. The Global Membership Approach Team is committed to providing the necessary support and resources throughout the process.

Risk To Club Health

Our Global Action Team (GAT) and our Global Membership Approach Team (GMA) will continue our focus on the District 60B Forward Program specifically with regard to Club Health. The Teams will work on the following:

  • Conduct surveys to evaluate the “Risk” that Clubs are facing
  • Assist Clubs in formulating corrective actions
  • Utilize the capable resources of our Guiding Lions to assist with the process
