The Lion’s Club Praha Prvni was incorporated on 7. 5. 1990 by and chartered under the jurisdiction of the International Association of Lions Clubs on 11. 5. 1991. Currently Lion’s Club Praha Prvni is recognized as second oldest club in District 122. Annually the Lion’s Club Praha Prvni sponsors many events, the most popular being The Reduta Jazz concert. Proceeds from these events are donated to a number of charity organizations and our long time partner Grammar school and the Secondary School for the Visually Impaired in Prague Butovice.
We are a world leader in the effort to prevent avoidable blindness, and we’re diligently working with Lions clubs and local partners to help provide the local capacity building, training, medications and treatment needed for those with eye diseases and to provide disability rehabilitation and education for all.
We are committed to providing youth and young adults with opportunities to succeed. The Lions Quest program provides young people and their educators with tools to make positive choices, resist drugs and alcohol, learn through service and become healthy young men and women.
When disaster strikes, we respond. We provide funding to address preparedness and immediate needs that allow Lions and their partners to be among the first on the scene in the wake of the world’s most devastating hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and other disasters.
Lions take action in their communities, working face-to-face with the people they serve. We support the wide variety of humanitarian efforts implemented and coordinated by Lions and give grants to increase their scale and effectiveness.
