The message of the governor
DISTRICT 403 A2
YEAR 2013 - 2014

Because we offer our assistance to all those
in need in our own communities and
around the world with unmatched integrity
and
energy.
We do this through our own efforts on the
one hand and the Lions Clubs International
Foundation
(LCIF)
other.
The Lions Clubs International Foundation
supports and develops programs to help
poor people around the world. Thanks to
the dedication and hard work of Lions,

Governor Godefroy CHEKETE
With his wife Hortense

"LCIF, A GREAT TOOL FOR
FINANCING
OUR
WORKS"
"Considering setting FOUNDATION
OF
OUR
OWN
COUNTRY"
My

Dear

Friends,

Two months already flow of our mandate.
I wish through this second letter, talk to
you about our reason for being, what
characterizes us and the pride of belonging
to the association, ie, service to the
community or what we commonly call
works.
Whenever a Lions club is working on a
task, the problems fade and the life of
communities improves. Why this result?

Dear Club Presidents, do your work
commission works and do not hesitate to
call in professionals to help you build
projects.
Do not wait until the last minute to
implement
your
projects.
I remember you from other subsidies,
standard LCIF grants that meet a variety of
needs of the community including the
construction of schools and hospitals,
homes for the elderly and the development
of training programs. The project must
exceed the scope of traditional activities
fundraising clubs and / or district and must
have the support of several clubs in the
district.
Moreover, LCIF provides grants to finance
actions Lions districts in the development
and implementation of large humanitarian
projects. These grants help Lions to extend

and enhance their impact on the local
community and the global community in
order to help a larger number of poor
people
around
the
world.
The Foundation provides support in four
areas:

Eye
protection

Youth
Services
• Assistance to victims of disasters

Humanitarian
Actions
Protection
of
views
Since 1990, the Sight First program is
available to those who need eye care of the
quality. With Sight First, more than 30
million people have improved their
eyesight or regain the use of their eyes.
The
Youth
Services
Over the past 25 years, 12 million young
people in 66 countries have benefited from
the teachings of Lions Quest, our
development program for youth from
kindergarten
to
the
end.
Aid

to

disaster

victims

In disasters, Lions meet immediate needs
by providing food, water and housing
using funds allocated by LCIF. For largescale disasters, the Foundation continues to
support communities so that they can
rebuild
in
the
future.
Humanitarian

Actions

LCIF involved in various humanitarian
efforts such as helping to build homes for
the disabled, the organization of vision
screenings for Special Olympics athletes
and
the
fight
against
measles.
Millions of people worldwide have
received assistance through 10,263 grants
from the Foundation totaling more than $
729 million. This number continues to

increase in part through grants from
foundations, corporations, governments
and individuals not members of the Lions.
However, the vast majority of LCIF
funding comes from generous donations
from Lions clubs and individual members.
LCIF is a great tool to assist us in carrying
out
our
work.
To address the contribution that we make, I
call each country to set its own foundation
at
our
District
403
A2.
The foundation is the act by which one or
more persons or entities decide the
irrevocable assignment of property, rights
or resources to make a work of general
interest
and
non-profit.
This "irrevocable assignment" is the
guarantor of the continuity of the
foundation as well as the property given or
bequeathed
cannot
be
returned.
How

is

foundation?

A foundation exists from its recognition

administrative authority of each country.
What

The

criteria

are:

• the public interest nature of the object of
the foundation;
• an initial endowment income should
enable the financing of actions that the
foundation intends to implement;
• the composition of its board of directors
which includes a panel of founding
members to ensure the spirit of the
foundation, a college co-opted members

foundation is obliged to abide by its
constitution.

A message FROM THE SECRETARIAT OF
THE LOAD LETTER FROM THE GOVERNOR OF
COMMUNICATIONS AND PUBLIC RELATIONS
DISTRICT 403 A2

The importance of staffing affects the life
of the foundation since the income of the
latter are the main resources. Unlike an
association, it is not paying members.
What are the
foundation?

characteristics

of

a

Recognized charitable foundation has the
legal capacity to receive donations:
• manual gifts that allow tax deductions to
donors within the limits set by law;
• donations by deed also giving rise to tax
deductions to donors, the foundation
enjoying special regime for exemption
from inheritance free of charge;
• the bequests by will also give rise to
exemptions in inheritance for free.
It may call for public donations.
So I appeal to the Presidents of the Region
to support and take ownership of the
project to bring it to its realization with the
help of Past District Governors, Past
Presidents of the Board of Governors and
Past Officers and Officials at all levels.

The Lions year continues and our friend
Leo Godfrey Chekete is laying the
groundwork for his governorship
innovating for District 403 A2 exception
......
While all regions are activated, prepare and
organize to welcome an official visit, the
Region 31 was pleasantly surprised to
receive a message announcing a "nonformal" visit of the Governor in
preparation of his next official visit. This
approach is new and highly innovative
especially as Liberia is also visiting.
It is for him to inquire about the realities
on the ground, share directly with local
officials to find ways to lend a tone to a
few clubs who need help, support and
especially motivation. Congratulations
Governor!
We can only welcome this initiative, it
undoubtedly lay the foundation for a close
and productive collaboration, she will
oversee the actions of PR and PZ and most
importantly, it will "date" for the Way of
