Connected Elders and Youth

An intergenerational digital literacy program designed for Nunavut.

Let's create a world where we can age together.

Whether it is isolation, loneliness, food security, safety, shelter, access to healthcare, accessibility, or giving voice, HelpAge Canada assists, empowers and connects older persons in Canada and around the world.

Sponsor A Grandparent

Older people are critical contributors to family, community, and society. They are both the largest growing and the most under served population in the world. A monthly donation, starting at $40, helps support the cost of food, water, shelter, medicine and clothing. It restores dignity and hope while giving a Grandparent the respect they deserve. 

Our sponsor program is active in Dominica, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Kenya, and Sri Lanka.
