Schools & Colleges

Together we bring positive benefits to your school, college & students.

Skills Development

It's a win win for children and older students to share activities and experiences with our elderly friends and thereby improving health and mental well-being, learning and mutual understanding for all involved.

Positive Communication

Meeting and chatting with our "friends" can create positive changes in perception and attitudes towards older people and increase students self confidence. Overall it's a fun experience for everyone.
