On Saturday 12th June 2021, or thereabouts, clubs in District 105SW will be celebrating LCIF Day.

LCIF is Lions Clubs International Foundation which is the association’s own Foundation that was set up 53 years ago.

Since then grants to the value of more than a billion US dollars have been made to enable Lions Clubs better serve mankind and their communities.

The focus areas of LCIF are Childhood Cancer, Diabetes, Disaster Relief, Environment, Humanitarian Needs, Hunger, Vision and Youth.

All grants made by the Foundation are administered by Lions Clubs so donors can be confident that all donations go towards grants that the recipient will benefit from and not be lost in a large body or non-governmental organisation (NGO).

Youth Projects

The district has a number of youth projects including Young Ambassador and Young Leaders in Service.

Youth projects are designed to help young people make new friends and also provide support in their personal development.
