How to Plan a Children’s Summer Camp Project

Swedish Summer Camp

Poverty and alcoholism are responsible for a high number of abandoned children in parts of Europe, where hundreds of kids end up in orphanages. The Lions of Sölvesborg bring joy and new opportunities to kids from children's homes in Lithuania and Poland by inviting them to a summer camp in Sweden. Learn how Lions made this project happen. And get “Tips and Tools” you can use to do a project like this in your community.

LCIF is providing an additional US$300,000 to support the project. Read blog.
