Lok Environment Action for Development of Ecological Rural Society- LEADERS is a leading Non-Governmental Organization based in Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand that is committed to improve the lives of underprivileged elderly & senior citizens who are not looked after by their children & family. It was set up in 2004 and is registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860.
LEADERS runs a senior citizen home, Aashiyana, a premier and bountiful retirement home located in Lansdowne, a small town in Pauri Garhwal district in Uttarakhand. The old-age home is architected to provide an idealistic retirement to senior citizens & embodies a complete living setup specially designed for senior citizens.
This includes an accommodation arrangement for 35 elderly, hygienic dining facilities, fine entertainment options, spiritual growth centers, excellent health-care advantage, round-the-clock security and a team of eldercare professionals and the elderly don't have to pay anything for this. We strive to improve the quality of life for older people by creating conditions that foster independence, well-being, security, fulfillment and continuing contribution to society during the later stages of life. At Aashiyana, we aim to take away worries from the elderly and convert their frowns into smiles.
Uttarakhand has the the highest migration rate in India which is giving rise to a large number of old aged people left behind in the villages & small towns after their children have moved to cities for jobs & for a better lifestyle. Besides, some people don't want their old aged parents to stay with them. Out of 36 senior citizens in the vrudhashram, children of 12 elderly live in the cities & have a good earning but they don't want to stay with their parents. These cases are rising everyday leaving many elderly homeless & no one to take care of.
We are raising funds to increase the capacity of the vrudhashram so that we can accommodate more helpless elderly & senior citizens who are not looked after by their children & family. We aim to provide them a ray of hope in the second innings of their life & to give them every happiness that they should have got at their own home.
Our senior citizens are in need of our help. Donate whatever amount you can. Your smallest donation can bring happiness to the lives of these old aged people.
