At Lions Clubs International (LCI), we are global. That's why our International Relations programs aim to create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world.
We initiated this goal in 1945 by helping develop the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) charter of the United Nations. In 2008, LCI extended our international reach by signing the UN Global Compact to help fulfill the UN Millennium Development Goals. And today, international cooperation continues through Lions who are appointed to serve as representatives to:
Lions Clubs International and the United Nations – two international relations organizations, working together. Lions also develop international relationships on a one-to-one basis through the Club Twinning program.
