Summary

Although the constitution of India defined as welfare state and Indian family as a social institution is well known for the emotional and physical support that it provides to its extended members, many a time it fails to respond to the needs of older people in the age group of 60 years and above in difficult circumstance specially in the metropolitan cities.

Challenge

Hey were not only abused by their natural children, in-laws within the own parent; rater they tortured them both physically and mentally, worse thing is that many of the young generation wish for their early death as they considered their living under the same shelter gives an economy burden. Sometimes society itself drives such aged person out of the system to lead lives of sub human existence. More often vulnerable aged people in distress ends up as servant.

Solution

The Mission Statement of Support the Elderly Persons (STEP) is to promote the dignity and worth of the elderly persons through empowering them to optimize their potentials, access all available services and opportunities and be able to address their day to day challenges of reduced income, food and health.

Long-Term Impact

The Vision of Support the Elderly persons is " A SMILE IN THE END". Through this vision, the project implementers so far have reached 1000 Homes and about 200 elders through this effort we have managed to distribute clothes, mosquito nets, mattresses and other beddings, basins, facilitated with medication received food.
