HelpAge India

HelpAge India is a leading charity in India working with and for disadvantaged elderly for more than 3 decades. It was set up in 1978 and is registered under the Societies' Registration Act of 1860.

The organisation has bettered the lives of 1.25 million elders across the country via its nationwide initiatives for elder rights and relief. CRISIL has assigned HelpAge a grading of VO 1A (Very Strong Delivery Capability and High Financial Proficiency) the highest grading for the NGO/ Voluntary sector on a scale of 1A to 5C.

A reflection of our excellence in work and commitment.

Speaks highly of our delivery capabilities, credibility, and financial discipline.

Traditionally the focus was to improve the quality of life of destitute elders primarily in the rural areas through its welfare projects by providing free rations, free medicines and consultations and conduct free cataract surgeries.

However, HelpAge slowly spread its wings and started focusing on long term sustainability options for these elders through various livelihood projects and helping them form Elder Self-Help Groups, which today span India. For the last few years, there has been an increased concentration on advocating for elder rights, engaging with the government on framing of new legislation and pushing for the implementation of the National Policy of Older Persons.

HelpAge is now also increasingly focusing on the concerns of urban elderly having realised that even relatively economically advantaged elders face emotional and physical problems. The organization envisions a society where elderly have the Right to an active, healthy and dignified life. We are integrating our programmes and services, and consciously moving from welfare towards development and long term sustainability for seniors. We are working closely with Senior Citizen Associations and encouraging seniors to speak up for their own rights. We are actively working as a pressure group and focusing on Elder Rights such as the Right to adequate Health Insurance, Right to Universal Pension and working towards providing elders a society with age appropriate services.

>Why Support HelpAge?

In our continuing fight against poverty, isolation and neglect of elders though we have made significant strides, but they are just a drop in the ocean. With your help, we hope to achieve the following milestones by the year 2020:

Livelihood security for two million elderly through institutions of elderly.

Health security for two million elderly.

A National movement of elders that gives them a voice and political constituency.

Age appropriate services to 12 million elderly in partnership with government, private sector and civil society.

The aim is to help elders rebuild their own lives and take charge of their own future, restoring within them a sense of self-worth and confidence.

Your invaluable contribution through Cashback will help us continue our work towards India‘s disadvantaged elderly and help us enable better, independent, more dignified lives for them.
