"Lonely life... Don't endure it, don't let others suffer it. There is a way... Volunteer Now!"
Respect and love for elders in our family or in the society is built into every Indian's upbringing. This attribute helps shape character from an early age. Now you can turn this inherent quality in you to bring elders, whoever they maybe or wherever they may live, a unique advantage.
HelpAge India's initiative, AdvantAge Card allows elders to avail discounts on products and services; medical expenses to entertainment and many other useful products and services. The idea is to empower the elderly to use their budgets in the best possible manner, in these times of high inflation.
The introduction of AdvantAge Chapters is taking this initiative to a whole new level. In brief, members of the AdvantAge card with desire to serve society can come together and form AdvantAge Chapters to stay physically, mentally and socially active with a common-goal in mind!.
