In Nigeria aging constitutes an important discussion due to increasing elderly population. In Nigeria, our elderly parents are dear to us. Unfortunately most “successful’ children live with their immediate families in the cities while their aged parents live alone and most often retire to the villages. Dewdrop Foundation’s goal is to ensure that such senior citizens/retirees get the much needed professional care and loving companionship to enable them age gracefully and live longer. The Foundation supports Senior Citizens/the Elderly to form Associations focused on supporting each other, addressing their common needs, and providing a voice for the Elderly/Aged in the society.
The Foundation also provides skills/capacity building and job opportunities for Caregivers, focused on Elderly-care and enables such Caregivers to become self-reliant through entrepreneurship and empowerment programs.
