The goal of LCI Forward is to triple our impact worldwide by improving the lives of at least 200 million per year by 2020-21 through expanded humanitarian service.
The number of people in need served by a Lions Club - the visually impaired, people with disabilities, people needing urgent assistance and often life-changing medical assistance - has increased sharply (by four-fold) since 2010-11, and is increasing every year.
The need for voluntary humanitarian service is higher than ever as a result, and we need to remind society of our impact, and what communities could be like without a Lions Club, and what people united in service can do to meet rising needs and build communities of hope and resiliency.
We are today the largest voluntary service organization in the world. Continuing to innovate in services to Lions clubs and districts, including further harnessing technology advances, will be essential to our second century of success and expanding our humanitarian service.
People have more choices today to serve and give back to their community/people in need. We need to continue promoting new ways for caring people to be involved in our service and provide options for service engagement which are flexible and mesh with today's busy lifestyles. We will continue to welcome people of all ages, genders, races and faiths into our movement.
More vibrant and resilient communities where humanitarian needs are effectively addressed.
Increased awareness of Lions as the world's recognized leader in voluntary service for another century.
Increased membership and improved retention with the majority of clubs growing every year.
New ways for people to serve so that more individuals can be part of life-changing service.
