OLDER PERSONS ASSOCIATIONS FOR SUSTAINABILITY

As a way of ensuring sustainability of our projects, we encourage Older Person’s Associations (OPA) in the communities to have a sense of ownership of the project by being self-starter’s who are able to identify the problems being faced by older persons in their communities and to be proactive in finding solutions specifically addressing to their community needs

We are proud of one of our OPAs that was able to organize a community awareness day on the rights of older persons in Tsabango, Lilongwe.

The ward councilor for the community has promised to source funds and work together with their fellow councilors and chiefs to include younger people in all activities and open more OPAs in surrounding communities.
