THE GOLDEN HEROES
The Golden Heroes is a cause aimed to support senior citizens in old age homes and spread awareness against elder abuse
A study notes that over 65% of elders in India face neglect. When the elders are neglected, they are either left to fend for themselves or left at old age home with little or no emotional support. Many elders in old age home are left with no visits or calls. The Golden Heroes was conceptualized to help such elders and bring a smile on their face.
Volunteers participate in the Golden Heroes at least once a month.
The cause is active at 2 Daycare centers in Bengaluru(Shanti Nagar & Hennur) and 4 old age homes across Bengaluru.
Once an invite is sent out through Facebook, Meet-Up, and Whatsapp, volunteers confirm their presence. On the previous day of the event, the location of the event is shared and the commute is discussed. On the event day, the volunteers gather at the old age home or daycare center. After all the volunteers are briefed on how to go about, in the daycare center, the volunteers sit with elders help them make paper bags or organize fun games. During the the session, the elders engaged in entertaining activities such as singing and dancing.
