Help Age International

HelpAge International is an international NGO that helps older people claim their rights, challenge discrimination and overcome poverty, so that they can lead dignified, secure, active and healthy lives. Their work is strengthened through a global network of like-minded organisations.

Five organisations in Canada, Colombia, Kenya, India and the UK set up HelpAge International in 1983 to provide a strong network to support older people worldwide.

The HelpAge International network has since grown steadily in size and influence. HelpAge International now has 101 affiliates and works with more than 200 other partners in more than 70 countries across the world.
