Our Background

The elderly group in Uganda consists of the urban and rural elderly. The elderly in urban areas rely on pension support, while those in rural areas rely on hand work till they are physically incapacitated.

Traditionally, the extended family provided care and support to the elderly. However, in modern society, the role of traditional family support has greatly reduced.

The elderly were revered and respected for their wisdom and experience, their counsel was sought where necessary. They were the vehicles through which traditional morals (customs and behavior) and values were passed from one generation to another.

These and many other traditions have been largely discarded today and there is evidence that Uganda’s elders do not enjoy the privileged position they once were assured of. Much as they play an important role in society, they are not acknowledged. The prevailing negative attitude towards them leads to a lot of suffering in this group of people.

The elderly have children (orphans / grandchildren) under their care with meager or no resources. They face physical deterioration due to poor shelter, health care, loss of family members all which leave them with feeling of abandonment and helplessness.
