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 7,415 groups with  95,584 Elderly across 16 states in India, helping elders regain their dignity.
