HelpAge India is secular, not for profit organization registered under the Societies’ Registration Act of 1860. We were set up in 1978, and since then have been raising resources to protect the rights of India’s elderly and provide relief to them through various interventions.
We voice the needs of India’s 100 million (current estimate) “grey” population, and directly impact the lives of lakhs of elders through our services every year.
We advocate with national & local government to bring about policy that is beneficial to the elderly. We make society aware of the concerns of the aged and promote better understanding of ageing issues. We help the elderly become aware of their own rights so that they get their due and are able to play an active role in society.
