THE GOUVERNEUR LIONS CLUB
It’s that simple, and it has been since we first began in 1917. Our clubs are places where individuals join together to give their valuable time and effort to improving their communities, in the world.
Lions Clubs, volunteers, and partners to improve health and well-being, strengthen communities and support those in need through humanitarian services and grants that impact lives globally, and encourage peace and international understanding.
HOW DO LIONS SERVE?
VISION- we are a world leader in the effort to prevent avoidable blindness, and we are diligently working with Lions Club‘s and local partners to help provide the local capacity building, training, medication, and treatment needed for those with eye diseases and provide disability rehabilitation and education for all.
YOUTH- We are committed to providing youth and young adults with opportunities to succeed. The Lions Quest program provides young people and their educators with tools to make positive choices, resist drugs and alcohol, learn through service and become healthy young men and women.
DIABETES- We are providing support to help Lions educate the public and establish programs around one of our global focus areas: Diabetes.
WORLD HUNGER- We help provide healthy meals for the hungry and work to establish strategies and greater capacity for communities in which food is scarce.
THE ENVIRONMENT- We are working with Lions to preserve our planet, knowing that the health of our local communities and environments affects us all. Our goal is to help establish a sustainable future for generations to come.
CHILDHOOD CANCER- Across the globe, too many children are being affected by cancer. We are helping Lyons establish programs and provide greater service and access to care for those diagnosed- giving hope to them and their families.
DISASTER RELIEF- When disaster strikes, we respond. We provide funding to address preparedness and immediate needs that allow Lions and their partners to be among the first on the scene in the wake of the world’s most devastating hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and other disasters.
HUMANITARIAN- Lions take action in their communities, working face-to-face with the people they serve. We support the wide variety of humanitarian efforts implemented and coordinated by Lions and give grants to increase their scale and effectiveness.
