What Is Lionism

Distilling The Essence

LIONISM, started with the dream of one man, Melvin Jone, is now a philosophy of life for over 1.4 millions people throughout the world. The principles are enshrined on our LIONS OBJECTs and CODE OF ETHICS.

It is a value-system which calls for every Lion to bring out the best in himself and transmit the values to his fellowmen.

It is a way of life that enriches the quality of living. It puts more life into your year (quality) and more year into your life (quantity). It promotes personal growth through "Service Above Self".
