Senior Citizen Activity Center — Brief Project Summary:

 

India has a very high number of men and women who once reaching old age or retirement are left to their own solitude and loneliness with rarely their children having the time to spend with them as they are busy earning their living, which in turn leads to depression. Further the purpose of this project is to enable them to do all that they could not earlier as they were busy fulfilling their responsibility. Old age also comes with a multitude of illnesses, disability and more so loneliness. As the person is retired, the earning and thus his/herself-supporting capacity is greatly reduced. They do not have social security/Pension from government. Hence the objective of the project is multifold.
