Livelihood Support

HelpAge mobilizes elders through the formation of Elder-Self-Help-Groups (ESHGs) that are centered on sustainable methods of income generation. These ESHGs are then federated into higher level community institutions so that they gain additional robustness. This model of HelpAge India has been adopted by the Ministry of Rural Development. HelpAge supports 5400 Elder-Self-Help-Groups consisting of 71,272 senior citizens across 17 states, helping elders regain their dignity.
