ABOUT DISTRICT 317A

Lions District 317A consists of 6 (Part of Bangalore, Ramnagara, Mandya, Mysore, Chamrajpet and Tumkur) revenue district of Karnatak state, India. We have about 4500 lions and 120 clubs it includes 35% of Lioness

     The 'unassuming compassion', the life affirming gratification in serving others, is the foundation chromosome of the KARNATAKA LION's legend. Every member and the vast army of volunteers and journeymen who have walked the path seems to have it in differing measures.

     It has been establishing hundreds of projects, during the span of more than sixty long years, since 1950. It has sprung dignity and self-reliance for thousands of destitute, outcasts and ill.

     Laurels to the club have always been overflowing from District dignitaries, Club Presidents, International Presidents and Directors, and government and public Institutions for the work done and has inspired members and motivated many a leaders to continue the good work.

     "Lionism has come to stay in india","Lions all around the world are a tremendous force to reckon with: Service in Lionism is not necessarily meant to be a vocation-not even a part time occupation-but, it is truly meant to be a hobby of the heart and motive of the mind." This is the definition of the lions motto

"We Serve"

.

Lions Mission and History


Mission Statement To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.

Vision Statement

To be the global leader in community and humanitarian service.

History

In 1917, Melvin Jones, a 38-year-old Chicago business leader, told members of his local business club they should reach beyond business issues and address the betterment of their communities and the world. Jones' group, the Business Circle of Chicago, agreed.

After contacting similar groups around the United States, an organizational meeting was held on June 7, 1917, in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The new group took the name of one of the invited groups, the "Association of Lions Clubs," and a national convention was held in Dallas, Texas, USA in October of that year. A constitution, by-laws, objects and a code of ethics were approved.

Within three years, Lions became an international organization. Since then, we've earned high marks for both integrity and transparency. We're a well-run organization with a steady vision, a clear mission, and a long – and proud – history.

Beginning in 1917

Melvin Jones asked a simple and world-changing question – what if people put their talents to work improving their communities? Almost 100 years later, Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization, with 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs and countless stories of Lions acting on the same simple idea: let's improve our communities.

1920: Going International

Just three years after our founding, Lions became international when we established the first club in Canada. Mexico followed in 1927. In the 1950s and 1960s international growth accelerated, with new clubs in Europe, Asia and Africa.

1925: Eradicating Blindness

Helen Keller addressed the Lions Clubs International Convention in Cedar Point, Ohio, USA, and challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." Since then, we have worked tirelessly to aid the blind and visually impaired.

1945: Uniting Nations

The ideal of an international organization is exemplified by our enduring relationship with the United Nations. We were one of the first nongovernmental organizations invited to assist in the drafting of the United Nations Charter and have supported the work of the UN ever since.

1957: Organizing Youth Programs

In the late 1950s, we created the Leo Program to provide the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

1968: Establishing Our Foundation

Lions Clubs International Foundation assists Lions with global and large-scale local humanitarian projects. Through our Foundation, Lions meet the needs of their local and global communities.

1990: Launching SightFirst

Through SightFirst, Lions are restoring sight and preventing blindness on a global scale. Launched in 1990, Lions have raised more than $346 million for this initiative. SightFirst targets the major causes of blindness: cataract, trachoma, river blindness, childhood blindness, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.

Today: Extending Our Reach

Lions Clubs International extends our mission of service every day – in local communities, in all corners of the globe. The needs are great and our services broad, including sight, health, youth, elderly, the environment and disaster relief. Our international network has grown to include over 200 countries and geographic areas.

our Impact

Our Impact

It is impossible to measure the true impact of the efforts of Lions around the world by numbers alone, but the statistics below provide a brief look at the ways Lions are serving the global community.

144,000,000: The number of people benefited worldwide as of March 2017 since the launch of Lions Clubs International’s Centennial Service Challenge in June 2014. Lions clubs are challenged to organize service projects in four key areas: Youth, Vision, Hunger and the Environment.

30,000,000: Since its inception in 1990, the SightFirst program has played a key role in reducing global blindness. SightFirst has been able to help 30 million people have improved or restored vision.

41,000,000: The Lions-Measles Initiative program has vaccinated 41 million children in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mali, and Nigeria against measles, which is a leading cause of childhood blindness.

13,000,000: Lions Quest, a school-based life skills program, is helping more than 13 million young people.

251,000,000: Number of doses of the drug Mectizan distributed by LCIF to people in 15 countries to treat and control river blindness.
