As a young district we are taking very positive steps in the direction of both District administration and Service activities. A solid foundation has been laid by our past governors and all the lions of this wonderful district 317F. This year too let;s begin by assuring each other that we are going to make this Lionistic year a memorable one and make it countable as one of the best in the years to come.
District Governors program is the effort of individual clubs and the individual lions who will come forward for serving the needy of the society, however my vision is to have sustainable projects which will be both meaningful and purposeful.
My prime concentration of service activities would be on ;Global Service frame work; i.e. Hunger, Vision, Environment, Diabetes and childhood cancer for which we shall be charting out programs throughout the year. The first program in this context would be large scale tree plantation along railway line from Doddaballapur to Gowribidanur.
We shall continue to support the needy of the society by providing Hostel, Classrooms, Library and washrooms at Y.M.C.A which will be used by many and also it will be a part of Lions Branding
Scholarships will be provided for the needy students which could reduce the burden on their parents and help students in learning better. Sewing machines will be distributed to the needy persons with the objective of creating livelihood.
Individual clubs will be encouraged to continue with their signature projects be it blood donation, health check-up, providing toilets, Providing Dialysis, wheel chairs, spectacles, in addition to the service activities defined in global service framework .
We have also working out on enrolling quite a large number of MJF's and PMJF's into our fold in this year. We shall be speaking to individual members and donors for making a benchmark enrolment this year.
The administration too would see a change this year, our team is working on revamping the look and feel of our district website and also planning to simplify CFlow for recording the club activities. We are looking at the option of launching a mobile app for our district.
My cabinet colleagues will be working towards making the district administration both simple and effective
Each of our designated District chairpersons would come out with their goals and aspirations to make this year a memorable one.
My theme for this year totally justifies my vision and dream for this year 'Lead to Serve'. As mentioned earlier let each one us take up the challenges and lead our lions movement to the next level, lets benchmark our service activities this year and challenge ourselves in the years to come.
