Our Origin

Since 1961, Lions International Youth Exchange Programme has been a flagship service project of the Lions Clubs International (“LCI”). Every year,  thousands of youths from different countries, ethnic and cultrual backgrounds, aged between 15 to 21 in about 100 cities around the globe are provided exchagne opportuniities by the Lions to extend their international horizons, improve their communication skills, promote understanding and peace among different peoples of the world.

Lci District 303 Hong Kong and Macau, China (“District”) since 2000 has continuously by open competition selected and sponsored hundreds of outstanding youths to outbound exchange. Before the incorporation of the Foundation in 2005, owning to the lack of a standing organization, Lions in the District had only hosted inbound exchange camps in 3 years in Hong Kong. The lack of reciprocal inbound exchange offered by the District has been much regretted by Lions overseas.

Our Objective

The objective of the Foundation is to unite the efforts of enthusiastic and civic-minded Lions and members of the public in Hong Kong and Macau, who are supportive of the values of the programme, to setup a standing organization to provide financial, manpower and other resources to support the organization and a sustainable development of the programme in the District.

The Foundation was incorporated on 27th October 2005 as a company limited by guarantee and has been recognized by the Inland Revenue Department as a tax-exempted charitable organization under the Inland Revenue Ordinance in Hong Kong. Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.
