Bangladesh Lions Foundation is the pride project of all Lions & Leos of six sub districts under Multiple District-315 Bangladesh. In order to establish a permanent welfare Institution at the national level and to supplement the efforts and programmes of Lions, and Leo clubs, Bangladesh Lions Foundation was established in 1974 under the dynamic leadership of Father of Lionism in Bangladesh Lion Late M.R. Siddique at Mirpur. This welfare service oriented Foundation is a non profit, tax-exempt and registered welfare organization. Its basic purpose is to promote human welfare by judicious use of the funds by the Lions, Lioness and Philanthropists. With the emergence of 6 Sub-Districts this has now become the Project of all the districts of Multiple District-315, Bangladesh.
