Our culture and society are changing so quickly. The way the older generation was brought up is different from the way the younger generation is being brought up. Many younger children have grandparents who are less than 50 years old. They don’t have much contact with older people. This can give older people a sense of fear and vulnerability when they do encounter the younger generations.
The aim of this project is to bring both generations together in order to have a better understanding of each other, to create relationships amongst each other and to learn from each other. This means they can then contribute better to their communities.
