Started in 1917, The International Association of Lions Clubs is now the world’s largest service organisation with over 1.4 million members in more than 43,300 clubs throughout the world.

Each club is independent, with its own constitution based on the international model, and is associated to the International Organisation.

Within each club, members agree their own set of rules ( constitution ) which is based broadly on the international organisation's model. Each club is free to decide how funds are to be raised and to which worthy causes such funds are donated.

The primary aim of each club is to help their local community. However, small contributions from many thousands of clubs enable the wider organisation to run projects to alleviate suffering in different parts of the world. Examples are:

bulletCampaign Sight First, running for many years to help cure/prevent 40 million cases of blindness worldwide. In India alone, over 300,000 cataract operations have been funded and the number is growing rapidly.
