Age International exists to change the world for older people; by helping those living in poverty in developing countries to have a better quality of life.
Age International does this by:
Raising awareness of ageing and development in the UK
Raising funds for the development and emergency relief work of HelpAge International
Carrying out policy and influencing work in the UK to change policies for older people in low and middle-income countries
At Age International, it challenges the stereotype that labels older people as a burden. But it also recognises that later life can be a time of increased vulnerability. That's why its work supports some of the most vulnerable older people in the world; it helps older people in over 30 of the world’s poorest countries with age-friendly emergency relief and long-term development.
Age International currently has projects running in 33 countries across Africa, East Asia and Pacific, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, South Asia, and Latin America and The Caribbean.See more
