Together, we create a transformative alliance, spreading hope and making a profound difference in the world.

“United We Roar; Unified We Succeed” emphasizes the statement that unity brings victory. Unity is the power that provides strength. Thus united as a team by inculcating the true spirit of leoism, our goals can be achieved, paving the way to success. The word “Roar” symbolizes that we, Leos are sponsored by our Lions Club International, and by bridging the gaps, we can strengthen communities and support those in need through humanitarian services. Thereby demonstrating that Lions and Leos are working towards a common goal. Our mission is to disclose our power of roar as a voice united, unveiling the incentives to serve society through the strength of unity, leadership, and cooperation while uplifting the movement and reaching the desired destination through the act of kindness and service.

The theme "Rise to Lead" of Lions International District 306 C1 embodies a powerful call to action, inspiring Lions members to step into leadership roles with determination and vision. It urges individuals to embrace their potential, elevate their skills, and take charge in making a positive impact on their communities and beyond. "Rise to Lead" emphasizes the significance of empowering oneself and others, fostering a culture of mentorship and support. It motivates Lions to lead by example, to be compassionate influencers who drive change, and to nurture the growth of future leaders. Under the guidance of Governor Lion Panthaka Dabare FDI PMJF PMAF, this theme galvanizes the district, uniting Lions in a collective journey of service, excellence, and transformative leadership.
