Melvin Jones was once asked by his colleagues, "What if these men who are successful because of their drive, intelligence and ambition, were to put their talents to work improving their communities?" To which he replied, "you can't get very far until you start doing something for somebody else." A similar question was put to the Charter President, Lion Vinod P. Shah, answer to which, sowed the seeds of Lions Club of Bombay Uptown, in 1991. Ever since, all charter members, Presidents and their teams have toiled year after year to build on the strong foundation for a healthy community service club, resulting in 25 glorious years of service to the community.
With a great number of permanent projects like providing Intraocular Lenses, Jaipur foot, Anaj Daan, Library cum reading rooms at Kamraj Nagar, PUC checkup, tree plantation, adoption of BMC school at Samta Nagar, adoption of girl children to facilitate their education, provide vocational training to underprivileged women, and most importantly, introducing youth to community service through the Leo Club of Bombay Uptown where they are taught to be selfless and groomed to be a better citizen.
