WHAT IF ELDERLY PEOPLE COULD FEEL YOUNG AND HAPPY AGAIN?
There are thousands of senior citizens globally that are often socially isolated, which can result in health issues. This is something that doesn’t need to happen – if the elderly feel less isolated and lonely, they can live longer, healthier and happier lives.
We wanted to do something to help this generation and we’ve made a big difference so far. YoungHappy helps the elderly by organising social events, producing relevant content, and building a community both online, through an app, and offline. Through this combination, YoungHappy has helped more than 40,000 seniors maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. When you are happy mentally, your physical health will follow suit, which is called active aging.
FUNDING WOULD ALLOW US TO…
With more than 40,000 members in our online community, YoungHappy has increased the active aging of elderly people to 18% based on the Active Aging Index of WHO (World Health Organisation). An increase in Active Aging Index results in happiness both physically and mentally. With funding from the Chivas Venture, we would be able to double this impact.
