Old Age Home Project

Let's start with the basic details.


The primary objective of this project is to provide mental and emotional support to old people. This is done such that the volunteers also learn and thus, benefit from it. Regular visits are conducted to mainly two old age homes, both in the weekends and on the weekdays(in the evenings). Volunteers go and interact with old people and conduct various fun activities for them, so as to relieve them off from isolation and depression.

Details about internship.


Old Age Home Project introduces to you an opportunity to simultaneously work for the betterment of the orphans and the elderly during winters. This internship opportunity involves the workout of an effective collaboration of the orphanages and the old age homes. We strongly believe that one of the reasons because of which the aged people feel isolated or depressed is because of the lack of young, energetic and enthusiastic people in their lives. And the elderly care and guidance that the kids are in need of, can be acquired in such old age homes in their company.

We require volunteers who will initially pitch the orphanages, so that they are ready to send their kids, along with us to the orphanage. This involves, speaking to the authorities and convincing them, as they might be reluctant to send their kids, initially as there are several constraints in such collaboration like handling the kids, taking them to the orphanages and then, trying to initiate a conversation between two sets of people who are from completely different worlds, yet sharing a common problem: Lack of some people who could make their lives better.

After the pitching is done, we will be beginning to take the kids to the old age homes. There will be a lot of extra curricular activities like dance, music, storytelling sessions, origami sessions etc. which they will be performing over there and will be trained beforehand by our team only who will make sure that each kid is taught well. This way, kids are also learning new-new things and they get an opportunity to showcase their acquired skills to the audience who are actually very enthusiastic and would watch them with much interest and zeal. There will be a lot of storytelling sessions in which, the old people will be narrating the stories.
