Meet Lion Lekha Sharma, District Chairperson for Lions Quest, Kolkata. She firmly believes that as educators, parents, and community members, we have an opportunity to impact the lives of young people every day. Lekha works with the Lions Quest program to provide a holistic approach to youth development addressing, social and emotional learning and civic values that are instrumental to a healthy society.
Lions Quest is a comprehensive youth development program that promotes social and emotional learning (SEL), character building, bullying prevention, drug awareness, and service-learning. LQ helps young people develop the skills required to deal with emotions constructively, make responsible decisions, and set positive goals that help lead healthy, responsible lives free from the harm of drug abuse, bullying and violence.

With 250 teachers especially trained to mentor and guide students, the program has benefitted tens of thousands of students. Lion Lekha is also instrumental in motivating over 300 teachers who are waiting their training in order to make a change to the society we live in and enable better citizens.
Great work, Lion Lekha… we are proud of you.
