What We Do

In Canada

In Canada we focus on vulnerable and isolated seniors. We sparked the creation and support the work of the Nunavut Seniors Society, the first organization representing seniors in this immense Arctic region.

Outside Canada

We provide assistance and empowerment to older persons in seven countries (Jamaica, Haiti, Dominica, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, India and Sri Lanka). We do this through:

  • Sponsorship of grandparents, victims of sexual violence, retired advocates and members of marginalized communities.
  • Income generating activities.
  • Kenya Gift Program which provides the necessities of life to older Kenyans in need.
  • Supporting emergency relief and reconstruction work in areas affected by disaster or conflict.
