The club was chartered on 26 August 1996 with eighteen charter members. The first charter president for Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari was Vistasp Vatchha.
Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller and communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the coast province a lion is always present ready to do what we do best "to serve".
Our main objective is to resort hope in people who are facing severe poverty in the rural areas of the Coast region. We share love and care with orphans who have been abandoned, we plant trees and restore our natural surrounding so that our grandchildren will see the rewards, we also raise money to help people get the best medical services and help they need.

This is donated service or activity that is performed by someone or a group of people for the benefit of the public or a society. Community service also provides a helping hand for a community who are facing severe poverty and cannot afford simple everyday necessities.
Fun and Friendship
Volunteering is all about fun and games. Whether it is a fund raiser or a service activity we tend to make it as lively as possible with alot of laughter and games to show to people around us that we enjoy what we do and that being a Lion is fun.
With a lot of our service activities being held at schools and orphanages, we mix a bit of entertainment in our work so as to please the children and to add a spark of excitement into volunteering.
Leadership skills include planning projects, motivating individuals, giving feedback and building teams. Many employers consider these skills — often termed as soft skills which are higly recognised by employers. We encourage students or school leavers to take part during our service activities to gain the experience they need to prosper towards a career in volunterring or teaching.
