When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve. In over 200 countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools and eyeglass recycling centers, Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, planning and supporting. Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities we live in. And because we're global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders.
Here's a glance at the type of community projects happening around the World, delivered by Lions Clubs, to make an impact on improving lives.
Visually Impaired Athletes Take To The Field
Beep baseball, named for the beeping sound the ball makes, allows visually impaired athletes to participate in a competitive sport that many people might think impossible for disabled individuals to play. Because equipment and tournaments can be costly, many teams reach out to local Lions clubs to help support the beep baseball program. Lions clubs across the United States support beep baseball teams in their communities by contributing time, money and team spirit, so visually impaired athletes can enjoy their love of the game.
SERVING AROUND THE WORLD
Lions Cultivate Healthy Eating At School
Home and community gardens have been increasing in popularity, as people become more aware of the benefits of local organic produce and the importance of eating healthy. Lions in Whitefish, Montana, wanted to start a special project that gave back to the community while addressing issues such as childhood obesity and diabetes. They started a farm-to-school garden that has brought the entire community together while teaching children and families the importance of healthy eating.
Raising Education To New Heights
Students used to crowd into a science lab to watch a chemistry lesson and wait for their turn on the computer. The school’s ability to take on more students was limited by its lack of classroom space. With the help of a Lions Club International Foundation grant and community support, Lions adopted the Sri Ramakrishna MHS and helped add an impressive three-story addition. Lions provided 16 spacious classrooms, a modern science lab and a fully equipped computer lab. “The Lions club paved the way, providing help for all developments,” said H. Jubaitha, a parent and vice president of the PTA. “They believe good education stands the test of time.”
