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.
Keeping in mind the vulnerability of elders & our Corona warriors on ground, in the current Covid 19 pandemic situation, HelpAge India is adhering to all the safety and hygiene measures for all its programs on the field, like wearing face masks, regular washing & sanitization of hands, and maintaining social distancing norms at all times, to ensure their safety & protection.
