Our Work

2023 Global Rally

The Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People holds a rally each year to raise awareness and strengthen the voice of older adults across the world. It encourages people to call on their governments to support the stronger protection and promotion of the human rights of older adults. As a proud member of this alliance, our team has launched a two-part campaign for the 2023 Global Rally.

#LoveAllAges Photo Contest

For the first part of the campaign, we ran a photo contest. The purpose of the contest was to nurture connections across generations, and was held from Feb 27 to March 3, 2023. During this time period, participants submitted photos of themselves with an older adult. Participants also included a short write-up of why the interaction is meaningful to them. All submissions were entered into the contest, and a winner was selected through random draw. Visit our Instagram page to see more of the #LoveAllAges Photo Contest.
