Our volunteers and facilitators strive to improve the lives of low and mid-income older adults (50+) their families, and the communities in which they live.
The United Nations World Health Organizations has declared 2021 to 2030 The Decade of Healthy Aging. Populations around the world are aging at a faster pace than in the past and this demographic transition will have an impact on almost all aspects of society. Already, there are more than 1 billion people aged 60 years or older. Many do not have access to even the basic resources necessary for a life of meaning and of dignity. Many others confront multiple barriers that prevent their full participation in society.
The United Nations Decade of Healthy Aging is a global collaboration that brings together governments, civil society, international agencies, professionals, academia, the media, and the private sector to improve the lives of older people, their families, and the communities in which they live.
