Engaging the aged in development

The aged have been sidelined in many spheres of development despite the valuable knowledge and experience they possess. PAF has been working with a group of Grandmothers who are guardians to their orphaned grandchildren . The grandmothers realized that they have a pivotal role to play in raising children that hold the future of this world. They struggle to meet the basic needs of these children but through their collective efforts in small income generating enterprises they have been able to meet the needs of the children. PAF has facilitated this supported through the Rotary Clubs of Keilor and Hawthorne of Australia.
