Older Person’s take a Step in alleviating their lives

We were delighted to be invited to be part of Green Corner and Manje older person committee meetings in Blantyre. The committees saw it fit to showcase their efforts toward improving the lives of older persons in the community. Among other efforts, they have been crowdfunding to improve the welfare of older persons particularly should one fall sick or meet unforeseen circumstances. This is in line with our goals under the Accountability and Fulfilment for Older People to Raise their Dignity project (AFFORD ) to provide effective social protection programs. We want older persons to be self-empowered to realize and protect their rights and actively participate in decision-making processes.
