Narendra Raval feted by Lions Foundation

Mr. Narendra Raval (Guru), Chairman and CEO, Devki Group of Companies was honored by the Lions International Foundation with the Melvin Jones Fellowship in Nakuru.
The honor is the highest form of recognition given to a Lion for exemplary service to their club, their community, and to their Lions organization.
Raval, CEO of the largest construction materials producer in East and Central Africa, says that the desire to uplift the living standards of underprivileged in the society runs deep.
Devki Group has been providing water residents in Athi River Township for the last 15 years as well as supporting a children’s orphanage of over 400. The Group has also been administering food to orphans in the Temples, through the Food for Life Programme for the last 12 years.
H.E President Kibaki honored Raval in 2009 with the Elder of Burning Spear (EBS) commendation for society empowerment.  
He becomes the 12th person in the entire world to receive such an accolade.

About Melvin Jones Fellowship
The Fellowship, which was established in 1973, is named after the founder of Lions Clubs International (LCI), Melvin Jones. It is explicitly referred to as an honor and not an award, and is the highest form of recognition to acknowledge an individual’s dedication to humanitarian service.   
Fellowship donations are largely responsible for successfully launching the Lion’s global attack on preventable and curable blindness (the LCIF SightFirst program).
