Centennial Service Projects worth Rs $100 million or approximately Rs. 650 Crore are to be announced as over 5000 global delegates assemble in one of the biggest charity-led social engagement at the ‘43rd ISAAME Forum - The International Vibrant summit on Centennial Service Projects.’ This event will be held from 16-20th December 2015 and will also salute Lions Clubs International’s 100 years of service, a landmark to be reached in 2017. 100 million people will be benefited as Lions Clubs International marks its 100th year of service with a vow to impact youth, vision, hunger eradication and promote a healthy environment.
Through targeted Global Service action campaigns, four service areas have been identified for immediate focus enabling one to serve maximum people in need. Engaging the youth in community services, sharing the vision to fight blindness through eye check-up camps and timely treatment, relieving hunger by creating a local food bank and protecting the environment by cleaning up roads, gardens and playgrounds will be taken up as service challenges.
Lions Clubs International has also announced that Mr. Naresh Aggarwal from New Delhi, India has been elected as the Second International Vice President by the Lions of the world to lead in the century year of Lions Clubs International, as the International President and will take oath of office in Chicago in 2017.
The focus of the Lions has always been on service, charity and exploring the possibility of having a global service team to cater to the needs of the society. Lions Clubs have been serving communities and impacting millions of people around the world for nearly 100 years and will continue the good work in the future as well.
