Due to fast paced lifestyle, popularity of nuclear families and many other factors old people are having a rough time today. Agewell believes that children could make the difference. If children are prompted to share a smile with the elders and spend a few moments together, the tide may start to turn. Agewell Foundation has embarked upon an ambitious social contact programme of reaching out to million-school students in Delhi in a bid to set off a feeling of acceptance and affection for the elders.
Agewell Foundation has interacted with 100000 school children so far.
