Summary of three major international service organisations in Padubidri
JCI Padubidri: This was the first among the three service organisations introduced to Padubidri and very well known to the people. Late P.Vijay Kumar Shetty was the Founder President and under his charming and enthusiastic leadership JCI gathered momentum in a very short span of time. Its main theme is 'Individual Development' and 'Leadership' for youth. This created many enterpreneurs, political personalities, National trainers, and well-disciplined youth. It has won many National awards for its service to the local population and the country as a whole. Its permanent projects include Bus shelters, various training for the school children and the general public, and a number of other service activities. Jaycee Week is celebrated with full fanfare. Jc Prakash Devadiga is the new president of Padubidri chapter for the year 2012-13.
Lions Club Padubidri: With a slogan of 'We Serve', this service oriented organisation started here in Padubidri under Lion P.Ravindranath G.Hegde, as the President. It soon became popular with its service projects like Bus shelters, Free Medical camps, Aid to physically handicapped and mentally challenged people, and other service activities. Its star project was to build an English Medium School by forming Padubidri Lions Club Educational Trust under the leadership of P.Ravindranth G. Hegde, as the President and Lion Jaiprakash as the secretary with the dynamic support of Lion K.T.Rai, Lion Krishna Shetty, Lion Dr. N.T.Anchan, Ln Haji P.K.Moidin and other members. It had many ups and downs, and during the time of crisis it was managed very well with the help of Lion K.T.Rai, Lion James Dain Andrade, Lion Krishna Shetty, Lion Ravi Shetty and Lion Dr. N.T.Anchan with the support of its founder President. The major breakthrough came when the existing trust President Lion Y.Gopal Shetty and Past President of Lions Club Lion Ramesh Achar set up an example by donating a land of 1 Acre for building a new school building. They left no stones unturned and accomplished this task by building a spacious school building. The services offered by this school was quickly acknowledged by LCIF (Lions Club International Fund) and they donated Rs. 19,00,000 for the expansion of the school.
Ln. Sadashiv Achar is the current President for the year 2012-13. More on Lions club Padubidri
