NGO Profile :
Agewell Foundation is a non-profit working in New Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR) for the welfare and empowerment of the elderly since 1999. They endeavour to bring about a change in society's perceptions of older persons, while promoting improved interactions between generations. Agewell has set up a two-tier network of over 7,500 primary and 80,000 secondary volunteers spread over 640 districts in India. It has been recognised for its efforts and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) has granted it Special Consultative Status at the United Nations.

Their programs include:

  • Share the Warmth campaign: As part of the campaign, Agewell collected old/used woollens and mobilized donations across Delhi & NCR by setting up collection points at various places and sensitizing youth on their responsibilities. In FY16, more than 1,75,000 woollens were distributed to around 75,000 destitute.
  • Holistic healthcare: Healthcare campaigns are conducted to provide healthcare equipment (walkers, wheel chairs, spectacles, medicines, bed pans, diapers, etc.) free of cost to the destitute elderly. During the year, around 4,500 beneficiaries were provided these equipment and 1,250 were provided with food packets (containing rice, pulses, edible oil, sugar, tea etc.).
  • Helpline for Older Persons: With the help of trained counsellors, Agewell reaches out to around 25,000 elderly on a daily basis. These counsellors identify and assist the elderly with family and social problems, financial and health related issues. It works as a bridge between the assistance seekers and assistance providers.
  • Research and Advocacy Centre: Study is conducted in areas relating to ageing and these findings are used to advocate on issues concerning the welfare of elderly with government, international agencies and others. The organization also carried out a national level study to study the status of human rights of older people in India.
  • Employment Exchange:  Opportunity is provided to the retired elderly in areas such as teaching, consultancy, accountancy, tuitions and training.
  • Family Membership Scheme: The program aims at providing family support to the elderly living alone in Delhi. A team of trained counsellors spend time with them, provide medical support, guide on legal matters, and help them pay bills.
